Monte Fitzroy, Argentina

This mountain was the sole purpose of my trip to Patagonia. Wind swept plains with a majestic mountain soaring into the deep blue sky. I could spend a lifetime in front of this mountain. Fuji Velvia, ND Filter, f45 @2 seconds. Limited Edition: 300

Monte Fitzroy, Argentina

It was the day we were due to break camp and I had hope of taking this image before we left. I had set up the camera before dawn in the hope that the mountain would clear itself of cloud in time before the full strength of the sun would reach the scene. This image was taken just before the sunís rays bent around the horizon leaving me with a pleasing clear purple sky and subtle details. Fuji Velvia, ND filter, f45 @ 15 seconds. Limited Edition:300

Monte Fitzroy, Argentina

It took four days for Mt Fitzroy to reveal itself from the clouds for the first time during this trip. Every morning I woke up before dawn to see if the mountain was in clear view. The fourth day was predicted snowy weather so I was lazy getting out of bed to check. It was almost a shock to realise that the weather report was wrong. I had trouble trying to catch my breath trying to operate my camera having run from the small town of El Chalten to the top of this lookout in time to capture this image early morning.

Poincenot, Argentina

This image was taken late afternoon not long before nightfall. It was a very demanding situation with freezing temperatures, frequent snow storms all with the hope that the tip of Mt Poincenot would reveal itself. I had all but given up for the day when finally the inclement weather paused long enough to take the image. Fuji Velvia, ND Filter, f22 at 4 seconds. Limited Edition: 300

Cerro Torre, Argentina

I had seen many images of this mountain before taken by previous photographers. I was really doubting that it would be a worthwhile hike given all the gear I was carrying and the pre conceived images in my minds eye. The images I had seen gave me the impression that a good image would be difficult given the dominating 'grey' surroundings caused by years of a retreating glacier. I arrived at this mountain and had to make a final scramble up over a scree wall to the front of this lake. I was absolutely amazed at what was in front of me. A towering mountain, lots of snow and plenty of icebergs to create an excellent composition. This image just goes to prove you cant judge a place by other peoples images pictures or you just may miss out on one of the most spectacular locations you'll ever see. Fuji Velvia, f45 @2 seconds.

Torres Del Paine, Chille

During my stay in Patagonia I set aside one full week camped right in front of this lake hoping to get the perfect view of the mountain with a stunning sky. I have found that allowing plenty of time in one location helps in capturing that perfect image. This was made easy as Torres Del Paine gave me perfect photography conditions on my first evening there. Undesirable conditions where the theme for every evening for the remaining time in this location. I believe photographing mountains are by far the most unpredictable, but also rewarding subject in photography. Fuji Velvia, ND Filter, f45 @8 seconds. Limited Edition: 300

Torres Del Paine, Chille

This image was taken from a nearby lookout in the National Park. The biggest challenge was wind. The wind was that strong it had the strength to knock me over if I wasnít paying attention. I lay huddled behind a small ridge waiting for the clouds to unveil the mountain showing its soft outline. The next biggest challenge was trying to shelter the camera to eliminate the chance of a blurry photograph. An exposure of one second was a huge challenge in these conditions avoiding any possible camera shake.. Fuji Velvia, ND filter, f22 @1 second. Limited Edition: 300

Torres Del Paine, Chille

The most intriguing aspect of this image is that it shows how varying the weather can be over such short distances. It is a bright sunny day in one half of this image while the other half has stormy weather. The landscapes in Patagonia are very beautiful to admire but also some of the most uninhabitable I have ever experienced with it wind battered lands. Fuji Velvia, ND Filter, F22 @1second.
