Description

While in Patagonia, I was hoping to capture an image that illustrated the epic winds that the region is know for. I found that being a little farther away from the main storm allowed me to capture these dramatic clouds blowing over the Fitz Roy Range. The intense and steady winds made it difficult to get sharp images, so I made sure I made plenty of exposures as insurance. I positioned myself prone on the ground and left the IS engaged even though the body was on a tripod. Wearing swim goggles helped keep the blowing dust out of my eyes and allowed me to focus using Live View for the sharpest images possible using a long lens.
