Sunrise over the « Cuernos », Torres del Paine NP (Chile)

By Rafael Rojas


Patagonia, that legendary place…

Last month of December we finally could make true one of our “photographic dreams”, going to Patagonia, in southern Argentina and Chile. We arrived at the airport of El Calafate, and already the first sights of this place through the plane window made a big impact on us: a never ending arid steppe mixed with turquoise glacial lakes and the towering Andes behind. And afterwards, once on the tarmac, the wind. A wind that drills your ears. A wind that would hardly leave us alone during our stay in this magnificent part of the planet. The wilderness of this place was felt from the very beginning.
