Six-Years Ago (04-January-2011) — Argentina

Gone to See Patagonia 2010/2011. Photography Workshop with Thom Hogan. Day 9: Perito Moreno Glacier.

After we arrived at Hosteria Los Notros, we walked down to the boardwalk overlooking the Glacier. Perito Moreno Glacier is one of the few glaciers in the world that is advancing rather than retreating. I used a fish-eye lens to get the whole view of the Perito Moreno Glacier. Image taken with a Nikon D3s camera and 16 mm f/2.8 fisheye lens (ISO 200, f/22, 1/125 sec). Last I heard, the Los Notros hotel was closed since it is within the National Park.
