The sun is shining in Punta Arenas, something that doesn’t happen here all too often. The last few days after the Wenger Patagonian Expedition Race have been nicely relaxing, saying goodbye to all the racers and many of the volunteers for the race. Photographing the race has been a fantastic experience, I’ve met some truly incredible people here, and seen some of the worlds most spectacular scenery. I can’t wait to come back, both for the race and independently to follow some personal photographic interests (hopefully involving a large format camera).
I’m leaving tomorrow to come back to the US, although there are many reasons I would like to stay, including a chance to photograph for a day in Antarctica. But this will have to wait until next year. It’s been great. I will have a full story from the race in a few days, but here are some images to start.
