I've finally processed the last shots from my travels in South America. These are from Patagonia, like the last post, but this time from the Chilean side.

#1 Rio Paine
These first few shots are from Torres del Paine National Park.

#2 Torres del Paine



#3 The "Horns"



#4 The "Horns" from Salto Grande



#5 Grey Glaciar



#6 Grey Glaciar



#7 The "Horns" from Rio Grey



#8 Cruise on Admiral Montt Gulf



#9 Coastline of Estancia Monte Dinero

We stayed on this sheep station for a few nights. I was interested to find they call them "stations" as we do in Australia. (Maybe they'd be "ranches" in the US?) Like Australia they are large - this one was 26,000 hectares & it wasn't the largest in the area. The one next door was big enough to need two shearing sheds in different parts of the property! It also had a school and church.

The station includes the official, legislated start of the Ruta 40. Bizarrely, Ruta 40 doesn't actually run through the station, just the starting point is here!

#10 Shearing Shed - Estancia Monte Dinero



#11 Estancia San Gregorio

The foreground is the wreck of a tea clipper - the Ambassador. Background is part of Estancia San Gregorio - a huge sheep station now derelict. The water is part of the Strait of Magellan.


#12 Looking across Beagle Channel to Tierra del Fuego

This was about as far south as we got but it did allow us to look north to Tierra del Fuego!

C&C always appreciated. Thanks for looking!

Magnificent set, and thanks for taking us on the armchair ride.
All of them very fine indeed, but for me #4 and #5 are especially appealing.
More please?

A spectacular set of images, I especially like #2 with the llama in the foreground, #4 with the mountain wreathed in clouds and #11 with great use of the wreck for framing, but all good and give a good idea of the majesty of the landscape.

Beautiful places, but for me, #11 is my favorite. Thanks for showing us this part of the world.

Very nice. I particularly like 4-6.

The Grey Glacier is not very grey! Or was it named after someone called Grey who discovered it or something? Lovely images anyway, thanks for showing them.

Always a pleasure to view your images Tony. For me, from a very high quality set, #2 has a special appeal. TFS

Beautiful and spectacular views, Tony - what an experience this must have been. I very much enjoy to participate in it this way. It's different to see it than just reading about it - I read, some time ago, Paul Theroux' The Old Patagonian Express and was fascinated.

The views of the mountains and glacier are outstanding. But I have for some unexplainable reasons a preference for #7, #8, #9 and #11 - probably they show something that is not expected (and not already imagined).

Thank you very much for this very enjoyable set!
