With Bill Ellzey and Chilean Outfitter-Guides Salvaje Corizon
It’s hard to imagine better eye candy for a landscape photographer than springtime in Patagonia. Chochos, giant lupine, fill mountain valleys like carpets and throw rugs. And those mountains! The famed Andes laden with perennial glaciers and fresh winter snows tower upwards of 14,000 feet—from near sea level!
Having led photo workshop-safari’s to Patagonia in South America’s color splashed autumn and its dramatic winter, it is time to witness and photograph the spring, a season of new beginning, rebirth of tender life after winter’s harsh cover.
This is also the season when, in part 2 of the trip, the sun is far enough north for warm, orange sunrise light to skim the faces of the Curenos del Paine for one of the most breathtaking mountain light shows on the planet.
If these dates conflict with your Thanksgiving weekend let us know. When we know early enough we may be able to make changes with the lodges and our support personnel and shift our departure to Dec. 2, 3 or 4.
Thanks to my neighbor and photo colleague, Linde Waidhofer, whose photographs grace this web page (and her’s: western eye.com) you can see what’s in store for participants in this trip of a lifetime.
