Last fall, I had the great fortune to make a 3 week trip to Southern Patagonia in Argentina and Chile to photograph the landscape, animals, and peoples of this remote corner of our world.
One day, we took a boat out to the foot of the Perito Moreno Glacier in the Glaciers National Park to hike on the glacier. Led by guides and with crampons on our shoes, we spent a couple of hours climbing on the ice. I stayed at the back of our group with my camera and managed to get some wonderful images of the ice. It was tricky - when I fell back to make photos, the guides would yell at me to rejoin the group. I am sure they worried that I would fall into a crevasse!
The sky was overcast that day. I think it is a perfect backdrop for the ice. To give you some perspective, the icy peaks in the distance are about the height of a 10 story building. I hope you enjoy this photo as much as I do.
