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

I got up early for one final view of Mount Fitz Roy at dawn but it was hidden behind the orange clouds. Still a dramatic panorama. Before leaving, I got more colorful lupine flower images.  After a long drive, we arrived at Perito Moreno Glacier in Los Glaciares National Park.

Gone to See Patagonia 2010/2011. Photography Workshop with Thom Hogan. Day 8: Hosteria El Pilar.

We stayed several days at Hosteria El Pilar near El Chaltén in Argentina.  With the constant wind and extreme weather, the trees in Patagonia take on some unique shapes. After a long hike, there was a rainbow visible from the back porch at the Hosteria.
