Here is another photo taken on the same hike as the image yesterday. You do not hear a lot about the Patagonian tundra, but in its own way, it is every bit as spectacular as the peaks that we think of when we think Patagonia. It is such a fragile environment, with a very thin layer of earth covering the ice cap. I believe that this, coupled with the constant wind and temperature extremes, is what makes it challenging for plant life to thrive in this environment. This bush is about 4 feet high, just as was yesterday's. Did I trick you by calling it a tree? Well, a small tree, indeed! More to come from this part of the world. I am having fun going back. I have so many more LR and PS skills in my toolkit now, and can finally start to do justice to those raw files. We should all be lifelong learners, and this hobby certainly keeps me on my toes!
