Description

On this trip I wanted to shoot a scene that summarized what was Patagonia to me. When I found this tree at the Lake, I was sure I had found my subject. This trunk is a typical tree called “Lenga ". It has to be very tough to endure the extreme climate of Patagonia. However it is a tree that grows very slowly, around 5 cm per year.
