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 ) .

Near 'Botnar' Hut , located in 'Ermstur' Valley .

200m High canyon in this surreal moss landscape . I tried to stand in front of the picture to show you the size of the place but it's quite difficult to realize .
You can also see other people from the workshop on the next hill .

My girlfriend helped by shining an LED light on my back to light me up. I'm glad this one turned out, because I was freezing standing there still.

'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.
