Part of the process of beginning anew, or changing directions is to know where you want to go. I know this sounds simplistic and easy, but this is one of the most difficult of choices to make with clarity.
If you wish to be happy right, then it is about time to leave behind your past.
Looking forward to a massive adventurous year, full of travel and amazing light.

*About the Shot*
The 96% Moon lights the entire landscape just downstream from the looming Fitz Roy Massif.
During a trip here in March of 2015 I was able to capture this scene while standing knee deep in the freezing cold waters of this stream which are fed by glaciers less than 2 miles West of where I stood.
Just hours before one of the best sunsets I’ve ever seen covered this landscape with a pink and orange glow. The sky, filled with lenticular clouds, was so saturated during sunset that it’s nearly impossible to edit the photos… I’m working on it tho!
Look closely at this scene and you’ll notice the lenticular clouds moving slowly through the sky over a long exposure time of 30 seconds. Small star trails also can be seen streaking behind the clouds.
After shooting this location for an hour or so we headed back to our tents which were right down the river in secluded grove of trees which provided a little bit of wind protection.
During the night the wind was so strong that my one man tent nearly folded flat on the group with me inside. Good times!

This image was taken on the way back from WildPhoto 2015 South Georgia Expedition on the flight from Falklands.
Every Saturday LAN Airlines operates a scheduled commercial flight from Mount Pleasant International Airport (Falkland Islands) to Santiago flying via the southern Chilean city of Punta Arenas. Once a month this flight stops at Río Gallegos (Argentina).
From my previous experience I knew that this particular flight from Río Gallegos to Punta Arenas has unique feature: it passes magnificent peaks of South American Andes on the way. It goes almost directly over mount Fitzroy and Cerro Torre massif on Argentinian side and then over Torres del Paine National Park on Chilean. And in late November it does it during sunset time!
In 2012 this fact took me by surprise. I was tired after long Southern Ocean crossing and was napping when captain announced that we can see mounts Fitzroy and Cerro Torre below. What the view it was! My cameras were in backpack in overhead compartment, packed carefully for long five days of traveling home and I was on the aisle seat. So, I had no chance to take a picture, but the view stuck deep in my head.
Last November I was lucky to go to Falklands and South Georgia again. And guess what? It was once-a-month flight landing at Río Gallegos again! This time I was not going to miss complimentary aerial photo-shoot over Andes. I went to the LAN website to choose the right seat – window on the right side and as far from the wing as possible. After take-off from Rio Gallegos I was seating by the window in full readiness. My camera was on my knees and I even had a lens-cleaning liquid and tissues in my pocket to wipe the window. It was cloudy all the way from Río Gallegos… I was losing my hope. I even decided that we already passed over the Andes. And then… clouds magically opened right over the gorgeous mountain peaks! And no clouds were blocking the setting sun either! I was shooting non-stop and was changing lenses from 24-70 to 70-200 and back. I ended up taken more than 250 frames in little more than 4.5 minutes. I even managed to get several decent panoramic images… I was exhausted and happy when it all ended…

I had planned to shoot the mountain reflecting in the lagoon by moonlight. Aware that it would prove hard to compose at night, I secured my composition after finishing the sunset shoot and left the tripod there, hoping nothing would happen to it. When I woke up at 2 am, it was still there. The new problem was, the moon was covered by clouds, which destroyed my plan to shoot a ‘lunar alpenglow’. After an hour or so the moon rose above the clouds and lit the mountain, reflecting in the lagoon. I’m quite happy with the result, it was definitely worth the hardship!
If you’d like to experience and shoot these amazing locations, check out my ‘Giants of the Andes‘ Patagonia photo workshop and Fitz Roy Annex next year!
