Welcome to my Images of the Day Photo blog. My goal is to post images from each day of the year going back to 2006 when I got my first DSLR camera. My photographic interest include Travel, the Natural World, Landscapes, and Photographic Techniques. I try to include information for each image as to where, when, why and how the image was processed. Most of the images are available for purchase -- either as prints or rights managed (Clicking on an image brings you to the ShepArt Studio Team Site). Comments about the images or this site are always welcome. DJM

Hosteria El Pilar, Patagonia

Three years ago today I was on a Photo Safari with Thom Hogan in Patagonia. We stayed several days at Hosteria El Pilar near El Chaltén in Argentina.  With the constant wind and extreme weather, the trees in Patagonia take on some unique shapes.
