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

Gone to See Patagonia 2010/2011. Photography Workshop with Thom Hogan. Day 13: Torres del Paine National Park, Chile.

Guanaco Running at the Entrance to Torres del Paine National Park in Patagonia. We were working on taking landscape images when two Guanaco’s started chasing each other. At one point they ran right through our group, and I managed to take this picture. Two days earlier we had been practicing taking pictures of horses in motion, which helped me take this one. Image taken with a Nikon D3s camera and 70-300 mm VR lens (ISO 200, 300 mm, f/16, 1/100 sec). Later on there was a Guanaco framed on a ridge with the mountains behind.
