Nine-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.

This was a travel day. We departed Mirador del Payne Hosteria (Estancia Lazo) and drove to the Lago Grey Hosteria in Torres del Paine National Park. During the drive we stopped many times and I got pictures of a variety of birds. Southern Lapwing, Lesser Rhea (South American version of an Ostrich), Andean Condor, Upland Goose, Coscoroba, and Chilean Flamingo.
