Six-Years Ago (08-January-2011) — Chile

Gone to See Patagonia 2010/2011. Photography Workshop with Thom Hogan. Day 13: Estancia Lazo, Chile.

The hound guarding Mirador del Payne Hosteria at dawn. Overlooking Lago Verde and Torres del Paine National Park at Estancia Lazo in Patagonia. Image taken with a Nikon D3x camera and 24-120 mm f/4 lens (ISO 100, 40 mm, f/16, 1/60 sec).

One issue with using a DSLR to take images in Patagonia is the wind, and the potential for dust to land on the camera sensor when changing lenses. I had to spend a lot of time removing the dust spots from this image.
