Description

I had set up camp at one of Patagonia's most photogenic lakes the day before in order to have easy access to the lake at sunrise the following morning. Unusual stillness allowed for a shot of the iconic Cerro Torre at the head of Laguna Torre while ice bergs floated into and out of the frame. An unusually peaceful moment in a place known for its harsh and violent weather. The challenge here was to find a composition in anticipation of the moving bergs during the small window of intense light. The location of the ice had completely changed overnight, so any planning I had done the day earlier was for naught. I had about 4 minutes of great light to compose and shoot before clouds snuffed out the flame.
