Hello!

I am finally back from my ( too short ) trip to Patagonia ( Chile & Argentina ) this mid April 2011



let me tell you a short story behind this image .. with my poor english ( I am sorry for that )

The night before we were backpacking in "Chileno " camp , shelter already closed .. no one around .. alone in the dark forest by the river .
this night was frozen , the temperature reached - 6 ° C . we were supposed to get up very early ( 5.30 AM ) to have the time to reach the peaks for sunrise ...

My friend Cyril has left the tent during the night because he was too cold .. I was looking for him at 5.30 AM .. I saw something like his headlight in the night .. I called him but no one answered ..

Then I realized .. this is not my friend and his lamp ... these are EYES .. of a creature .. staring at me .. and now it approach .. I stepped back in the tent .. with moonlight I saw the shape of a big cat x4 .. a PUMA , in fact .. ! mmh
I don't know the danger about this animal .. and I am a very anxious person .. So it was a special moment !

we finally reached the peaks just before this clear sunrise after 2h route in the forests and rocks .

The original french text is visible on my facebook page or my website ..


This is TORRES DEL PAINE . CHILE .


This image, even though maybe a bit classical in its vision , is unfortunatly almost the only one on which we can really behold the magnificience and surreal appearance of these unearthly peaks ..

We had terrible conditions during our trek , very heavy bags ( 25 Kg ) and too fast and tired on the tracks .. I would have love to capture these landscapes with dramatic light and abstract vision but I definetly need more time in the field , .. to compose, to FEEL nature around.

I hope to go back for at least 1 month .

I still have the idea of organizing a workshop there, it would be amazing ; you can send me a note if you feel interested to learn photography in these areas with me .

If you are interested to buy the picture, I have the same without the person ( me ) .

I think I've made a point of the fact that I'm always out of time and out of space much toο often so I guess that by now it has sunk in. Chosing the first day of winter to put up my autumn ID proves that point beyond doubt. I just wanted to give you a sneak preview of what's next, I really hope you like this place, cause I have a couple of shots from it to show you.

Have a wonderful last month of the year all of you :)

'Set the controls for the heart of the sun'... Good old Pink Floyd song. Thought the title suited this image, seeing though I was getting ready for sunrise and madly getting excited. Not every day do I shoot sunrise..

This is actually full moon an hour before sunrise.

A new ID from one of my Favorite place around where I live .. Anterne Lake , approx 3 hours and half hike to reach this wild place ..

I love to backpack here , to wake up early and behold the light descending slowly on the green slopes . the clear mountain lake is very inviting but quite cold , in fact !

Hi, it's me ^^

The name of this climatic effect is "Spectre de Broken" in french. I had these beautiful conditions 3 hours ago in the massif of the Vercors.

Me, In Iceland, "Jokulsarlon" at "Night"

Eeriness of this amazing area ... Lost amidst emptiness, A very strange sensation here, something like fear , of the very wide icescape.
