During my road trip with Glenn through Tierra del Fuego we made our way to Lago Yehuin, a lake Glenn was told about that it might be a good place to attempt to make some photos. So we headed in the general direction of the place, not quite sure how long it will take us to get there or what exactly we will find once we arrive. We drove for about an hour through beautiful estancias (the Argentine equivalent of ranches) spotting theÂ occasionalÂ lama crossing our path and hoping that the moody, heavy clouds will hold. Because we were both looking for landscapes with skies full of drama after 10 days of being under the unusually sunny, blue skies of the Drake Passage and Antarctica just a few days before.
As we hoped, the drama was there! Now all we had to do was find a way to capture it in a meaningful way, which brings me to long exposure images.Â There is something magical about taking long exposure photographs. I’m not sure if it’s because you really have to take your time to setup the shot, getting your tripod steady, finding the right ND filter(s) to use and estimating how long your exposure should be. Or maybe it’s because a long exposure image allows you to slow down your photography, giving you time to really take in the beautiful landscape in front of you. Whatever the reason might be, the results are always interesting, surreal and sometimes unexpected. For once, I’m not going to give too many technical details on this images and just let you enjoy it as is.
