I love reading these articles baecsue they’re short but informative.
Thank you .
I’m staying in wonderful places, up before dawn and also for sunset as well as excursions in between. Not much time for post-processing and posting.
Great to hear back from you. The shot of the Viedma Glacier at dawn is fantastic. I hope you will have many more opportunities like that. Don’t worry about the post processing just yet, you will have ample time for that when you go back home. Have a great and safe journey.

Patagonia is wonderful and I find Argentinian people very friendly and helpful. Lost of time taking photos and travelling so not much time to post. Off to Torres del Paine in Chile tomorrow.
