Artist's Description

It’s been over a year since I was in this spot, but I still remember it vividly.

What you can see here is the towering ice-face of Mount Tronador’s principal glacier. Tronador is the highest mountain in the immediate vicinity of Bariloche, Argentina’s largest skiiing and hiking destination that sits in the lower reaches of the Andes in Neuquen province (i.e. just within Patagonia).

Tronador gets its name from its glacier. In Spanish it means “thunderer” – the sound produced when hundreds of tons of ice detach from the ice-face and tumble down the steep slope below. And sure enough, as I stood there admiring the vista, it happened – twice! But that’s a story for another time, since I captured it on camera…

This is a stitched image – hopefully the join (which I did by hand) isn’t too obvious. I realise that this isn’t a technically great landscape, insofar as it lacks a huge amount of foreground interest, but the subject is so magnificent that I couldn’t resist posting it.

Enjoy!
