These breathtaking photographs of Patagonia, southern tip of the world, were made by Michael Anderson. Michael is an award winning travel and landscape photographer based in Golden, Colorado.
”When I begin a trip, I have only a vague idea of the experiences and places I will see along the way. I make my route up as I go, allowing me to drift with the flow of the environment and the weather, always open to unexpected invitations for adventure. True to Rolf Pott’s words, I try and gather my time off into one big trip a year so I can immerse myself in the swirl of beautiful, strange, colorful and occasionally chaotic environment of international travel. I camp or stay with locals and take local transportation whenever I can. I never know what will happen or how the trip will end. My ultimate goals with photography are much the same. I have a vague idea of where I want to go, but I am letting the journey take me there. It’s going to be an adventure, and I can’t wait to see what’s around the next corner.”
Fire and Ice
Laguna Torre, Patagonia, Argentina.
A fiery sunset illuminates the cold icebergs of Laguna Torre, one of the most beautiful lakes in all of Patagonia.
Beyond the Fall
Perito Moreno Glacier, Patagonia, Argentina
Beyond the edge of colorful autumn lies a land of ice and snow. I came back here to catch this scene at sunrise but the prominent ice tower had fallen down during the night.
The thin ice on the edge of a lake was broken and then piled up on the shore by a powerful wind leaving this mosaic of patterns in the stacked ice. It’s a glacial lake which gives it a nice spectrum of green and blue.
Autumn Among the Glaciers
