Zodiac Leading an Antarctic Cruise Ship Through the Lemaire Channel. I had never seen clouds this color blue before, and they were that color blue. I am guessing it is blue light reflecting off the glacier. Image taken with a Leica T camera and 18-56 mm lens (ISO 100, 31 mm, f/11, 1/40 sec).

Six-Years Ago (04-January-2011) — Argentina

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

After we arrived at Hosteria Los Notros, we walked down to the boardwalk overlooking the Glacier. Perito Moreno Glacier is one of the few glaciers in the world that is advancing rather than retreating. I used a fish-eye lens to get the whole view of the Perito Moreno Glacier. Image taken with a Nikon D3s camera and 16 mm f/2.8 fisheye lens (ISO 200, f/22, 1/125 sec). Last I heard, the Los Notros hotel was closed since it is within the National Park.

Five Years Ago (04-January-2011) — Argentina

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

I woke up to more orange clouds at dawn. This time they covered Mount Fitzroy, but you could see the glacier. Before we left Hosteria El Pilar near El Chalten I took some pictures of the lupines in bloom. We then headed into Los Glaciares National Park. where I took a panorama image of Perito Moreno Glacier. As with the previous panorama images, these are best viewed in full screen mode.
