Gone to See Patagonia 2015 Photography Tour with Thom Hogan. Day 2: Calafate to Helsingfors, Argentina

Early Morning Clouds in Patagonia. View from outside the Kau Yatun hotel before leaving for Helsingfors. Image taken with a Fuji X-T1 camera and 23 mm f/1.4 lens (ISO 400, 23 mm, f/8, 1/30 sec). Raw image processed with Capture One Pro, Focus Magic, and Photoshop CC.

There is something special about the clouds in Patagonia. The wind coming over the mountains forms the lenticular clouds with their unique shapes. Also the sun coming over the mountains lights up the clouds with sometimes intense and unique colors.
