Andes, South America: Patagonia: Parque Nacional Los Glaciares, Argentina

Situated near the southern tip of South America, between the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans, Patagonia is a region notorious for its nasty weather - especially the relentless wind. The photography can be challenging; oftentimes the peaks are covered in clouds and the wind blows so strong that just standing is tough enough, nevermind setting up a tripod and camera!

In the region of Parque Nacional Los Glaciares, near the towns of El Calafate and El Chaltén in Argentina, huge glaciers flow out from the Southern Patagonian Ice Field, around the jagged spires of the Fitz Roy Range and other mountains, and into large turqouise lakes.  It's a spectacular region - a place where mother nature is flexing her muscles.
