Friday, June 1st, I will be debuting new images from Chile & Patagonia at Unity Salon in Downtown Fullerton as part of the June Art Walk. Images displayed include a sunset profile of the hillsides of Valparaiso, a UNESCO world heritage city that lies along the Pacific Ocean. There are numerous photos from Torres del Paine National Park, in Chilean Patagonian, including shots from Lago Grey and Grey Glacier. The frozen lagoon in front of the actual Torres del Paine was captured after a heart thumping 1500 foot early morning race up a mountain side to catch the sunrise. Images from Puerto Natales will also be featured. the early morning fog creating an ghostly effect along the seaside town. Probably one of my favorite photos of the trip is from a windblown tree that sits along the highway from Punta Arenas to Puerto Natales. We spent many of miles looking for the perfect tree on the return trip…and I was completely frustrated in my attempt to capture the image stuck in my head…only to realize later I had captured the exact image burning in my mind on the trip out to Puerto Natales…maybe that’s why the image was stuck in my head?
Hopefully you can make it out, and if you can’t the gallery above should give you a slight taste of what will be displayed.
