Loma del Pliegue Tumbado

El Chaltén, in Patagonia

The Trek I took this image at the start of the hike called ‘Loma del Pliegue Tumbado’. It was the favourite hike of the person who checked me in at the hostel the night before and it seemed like she knew what she was talking about...

Hostel

Photo of the Day: 6 – Hostel

If you need a hostel, El Calafate and El Chaltén have a lot of them. The majority of folks visiting these parts do not stay for long, I’d guess the average being 2-3 days in each, so they’re used to the quick turnover and can...

El Calafate

El Calafate in Patagonia

There is one major reason why so many people come to El Calafate and that would be to see the Perito Moreno glacier, a truly spectacular spectacle. I shot plenty of video of the glacier on the Sony A7SII and will be trying to post some of that...

South B&B

South B&B at El Calafate

  I arrived at South B&B in El Calafate and was met at the front desk by both Javier and Andrea. They are so experienced in people coming through their doors needing advice on how to get the best out of their trip that, by the time I...

Unicorn

Photo of the Day: 5 – A Unicorn

There I was in El Calafate, Patagonia, tired but happy after a day shooting video with the Sony A7SII at the Perito Moreno glacier, one of the truly great natural spectacles of this world. I’d walked away from a couple of the restaurants...

Flying

Flying high with the Sony A7RII

I suppose at some point I need to start at the beginning, so here are a few photos on the journey from Helsinki to Buenos Aires. Flying is not the most exciting thing in the world, so I put the time to good use. The Sony A7RII still felt like a...

Not a Fashion Blog, but… ‘Flor...

Now, I know that I’m not writing a Fashion blog but, sometimes, you just gotta go with the flow. I was doing my usual aimless wandering around with a camera routine in Buenos Aires when I came across this boutique tucked away off a main...

Concrete and Colour in Buenos Aires

The ‘Biblioteca Nacional Mariano Moreno’ in Buenos Aires might be a bit of a mouthful to say but it’s definitely worth a visit, if only to check out the architecture. There’s something about concrete and a splash of...

Stranger in the Light

Photo of the Day: 4 – Stranger in the...

Approaching a stranger and asking to take their picture is not something I have done very much of. It surprises me how often you get a ‘yes’. And those that don’t want their picture taken are happy to say no, no offence given...

Cherubs

Photo of the Day: 3 – Cherubs cherubing

Always good to get a picture of cherubs in a shot. Going in on a detail like this is also a great way to give an idea of how impressive a building like the Teatro Colón in Buenos Aires is. I took the guided tour, like a good tourist, and...
