New on 500px : Daybreak Glow by ArturStanisz by ArturStanisz

Patagonia offers immense light possibilities with the full range of spectrum. This is my next take on Argentina’s most famous peak, Cerro Torre. I left my tent when it was still dark and hiked towards the laguna. I was traversing the moraine and watching the light changing with every step of my hike. That morning I took many photos, but I like this one the most because of the first sun rays hitting the peaks. The sky exploded with orange and pink hues warming entire landscape. This is a single exposure with 24mm at 0.5 sec f11.
Please view on black for the best experience.

When I left El Chalten, the skies were dark and clear. After an hour and half hike, it was still dark, but the skies had clouded over and it poured rain. I thought sunrise was going to be a complete shutout.

As anyone who has been to Patagonia knows, the weather can change QUICK. Over about 10 minutes as the sun rose, clouds streaked across the sky and Mt Fitz Roy emerged.

This colorful sunset caught us while working on the hillsides of the Tromen Volcano (Argentinean Patagonia), and is definitely one of the more saturated sunsets I’ve ever witnessed!. This incredible Patagonian volcano is found close to the Buta Ranquil Town (Neuquén Province), and has a extensive lava field developed during two distinct volcanic eruptions occurred during historical times, the oldest one happening between 1400 AD and 1752 AD, and the youngest one occurring during the 1820s.

New on 500px : Triumph by MAPhoto by MAPhoto

This image is a personal favorite of mine, taken in the Patagonian winter recently. For me, it marked a personal triumph and communication with this mountain, one I have long held as the pinnacle of peaks on earth that I have seen. On this evening, it felt as though the mountain itself had won its freedom from the clouds. This magnificent, vertically improbable spire of Cerro Torre rises 7000 vertical feet from the glaciers below and as it cleared on this evening it was so beautiful and ghostly in its power, emerging from its veil of clouds, it was all I could do to remember to keep shooting.

I have captured this peak before but although the images were nice, I felt they were too commonplace in comparison to what I’d seen previously. Winter allowed me a unique perspective, with the waters of this glacial river being clear and 1/10 the volume of the muddy spring through autumn flows. The peak is very far away so I found it necessary to shoot with a mid-range length here, something between 55 and 70mm. I did a minor focus stack for DOF. Otherwise, the exposure was 4 seconds, which captured a little wind motion in the sky since it was blowing like crazy on this evening.

After 3 nights and 4 days of waiting in this area for this giant to emerge, and nearly giving up on it, the evening of this capture went from snowfall to intense windstorm to completely clear in less than 1 hour! A large view of this image reveals spindrift avalanches swirling down the cliff faces distant. I shot continuously, managing at this point to capture a fleeting second when the mountain stood alone. I hope you enjoy it and it does something to convey what was a very memorable experience.

A group of houses along the edge of the water in the Lake District area of Argentina. It was autumn when I took this image and the group of trees around the houses were a completely different colour to the ones behind.
