Here are some more shots from my South American travels. Though it’s getting to be but a distant memory now, I still haven’t finished processing them! Anyone would think I don't much like PP...

These shots are from the Lakes District of Argentinian Patagonia which is in the west of Argentina near the Andes and in the more Northern part of Patagonia.

1: Seven Lakes, Neuquén



2: Pehuén trees

Pehuén trees (aka Monkey Puzzle trees) are one of those “living fossil” trees & the national tree of Chile. I was surprised to find that they are quite common in the UK.

3: Lago Traful, Neuquén



4: Unknown Sign

Anyone care to propose an interpretation?

5 Road to Andes

We spent many happy daus driving roads like this.

6 Correntoso River draining Correntoso Lake

This river connects two lakes & is claimed to be the shortest river in the world. Not quite visible here are large numbers of really huge trout.

7 Correntoso Lake


Thanks for looking. C&C always appreciated.

Tony, some lovely images from a beautiful setting.
But what a crazy sign!! Perhaps any hiker coming to that spot needs to stop and wait for a bird to perch and sing??
I'd imagine the setting is very pure - snow melt water and clean alpine air.
Thanks for sharing, and keep grinding away at the PP and post more please.

Well, I am still processing the pictures of my trip to the US in may 2018 - you're doing fine

Patagonia is on my short/long list to visit and pictures like these are the reason. Beautiful and good pictures, thank you for sharing!

Great shots. To bad for the shadow in number one it would be a cracking image as a pre sunrise shot

That's an impressive set of some beautiful images, Tony!

My first impression really was: this is neither the Alps nor the Rockies - it seems the mountains here have a peculiar incline that makes them look different - like a stretched Switzerland.

I particularly like #2, #5 and #8 - with the last one my absolute favorite - so serene, calm and friendly. The images I saw of Patagonia have been quite different from yours - so this was amazing, too.

Thanks for sharing - and looking forward to see more! BTW: I have some images from 2015 which I have not yet managed to process.

Glad to hear that I'm not the only one wwith am embarassing backlog of PP!

Jozioau - I believe Patagonia has the cleanest water & air in the world. Certainly it seems like natural with the volume on 11.

Addy - I's encourage you to visit. It's my favourite scenery in the world & one of my favourite places.

C_N_RED_AGAIN - Damn! I hadn't really noticed that shadow but I'll never unsee it now.

Harald - I agree it's unlike the Rockies or the Alps though some parts are more ragged than the Lakes District shown here.

Thanks to all of you for your comments & encouragement.

Cheers
