Unlike the Argentinian equivalent, which yielded some fantastic weather for photos, the real Patagonia showed up in Chile. Torres del Paine –or Chilean Patagonia was rough with high winds, nasty weather, microclimates that would move from sun to rain in 30 minutes, and then would pound you with bad weather for hours.
Featuring Torres del Paine’s W-trail — which kicked my butt in spite of the shape I’m in — this rugged landscape challenged me as a photographer. Bad lighting, drizzle, brief periods of good weather, all of which forced me to have a camera ready at hand so that when it broke, even slightly, I could take pics. Rare are the photos without a cloud.
