Cerro Torre, Patagonia, Argentina

A few days ago I returned from a trek through Patagonia's Parque nacional Los Glaciares.  One of the highlights was camping at Cerro Torre's base camp at Lago Torre.  This picture was taken at 10:30pm, just after the sun had set.  The days are long (and the nights still cold) this time of year in Patagonia...

Iguazu Falls, Brazil/Argentina

This is a photo of a part of the Iguazu Falls at the border between Brazil and Argentina (and close to Paraguay too).  The falls have a width of over 2.5 km, are up to 60m high and make for a number of interesting strolls.  I have never seen so much falling water in my life -- what a spectacle!

This was nearly a month ago.  I've since moved via Buenos Aires to Patagonia.  I'm slow catching up on photos...

Artesonraju (6025 m), Cordillera Blanca, Peru

I shot this photo of Artesonraju, supposedly the mountain in the Paramount Pictures logo, at sunset after a very long and tiring day in which we climbed Alpamayo and hiked al the way to the base camp down in the valley.

On the way to Alpamayo, Cordillera Blanca, Peru

This is probably the fourth or fifth photo with Alpamayo (5947 m) that I've been posting in the past weeks -- sorry about that!  But I think that such a magnificent mountain justifies a bit of spamming...  

It looks like these guys are descending but in fact they are negotiating their way up the glacier to Alpamayo high camp.  What a fun glacier and what great weather we had!  The weather was like this almost every day during the 4 weeks trip!

Dusk over the Cordillera Blanca, Peru
Since Peru is so close to the equator it get's dark really fast and the "blue hour" is much shorter than that, favoring the quick photographer!  This photo was taken on an easy acclimatization climb close to the town of Huaraz.  Just getting started with night time photography, I played a bit with the settings of my camera until it got too cold.  So I headed for the tent, turned off the light, and fell asleep.

Galapagos Islands 2013

I'm just back from a week on (and between) the Galapagos Islands.  It was an expensive endeavour but totally worth it.  A once-in-a-lifetime experience and heaven for a photographer!

On the road to El Chalten, Patagonia, Argentina

A couple days ago I travelled to El Chalten which is the access town to the Cerro Torre/Cerro Fitz Roy range.  The weather was amazing.  I took this photo from the moving bus with my camera dangling over the drivers head.  Quite dangerous as the bus driver seemed to be in a hurry and was driving very "dynamic" and I nearly fell into his gear lever...

The spiky mountain in the center is Cerro Torre and the fat mountain on the right is Cerro Fitz Roy.

Rio de Janeiro from Sugarloaf Mountain (396 m), Brazil

I'm currently travelling through South America.  My first stop was Rio de Janeiro, a fascinating city, where I spent 5 days, doing the touristy stuff, visiting a Favela, hanging out at the beach, and so on.

For this shot I had to wait 3 days as Sugarloaf Mountain was always in the clouds during sunset.  But on the fourth day I got lucky and enjoyed a great sunset with very few people on top.  

You can see Copacabana beach on the left. The mountain in the foreground is Morro da Urca (measly 200 m high), where one has to change the cable car.  On the right, peeking through the clouds, is the illuminated statue Cristo Redentor which I was visiting earlier that day by a cog railway.

French Direct Route up Alpamayo, Cordillera Blanca, Peru

This is a close up shot of some climbers in the French Direct route up Alpamayo's south east face.  The chute is about 500m high and goes straight from the bergschrund to the summit.  The steepness is about 45-50 degrees so not quite as steep as it might appear on this photo.  When we climbed the route the next morning, we used fixed ropes to prevent somebody from falling down.

Alpamayo (5947 m) at sunset, Cordillera Blanca, Peru

Be sure to click this link for the full immersive panorama experience: http://files.danielarndt.com/2012-Peru-Panoramas/pano-AlpamayoHC4/pano-AlpamayoHC4.html

This is what they call the "blue hour".  It's that special post-sunset light.  I had scouted this spot -- about 15 min uphill walk from the high camp you can see in the picture -- earlier in the day with the plan of being there for sunset.  However, the sun sets quickly in Peru and fast walking at that altitude is not an option.  So I arrived a bit late for the show...

Alpamayo base camp, Cordillera Blanca, Peru

Please go here for an immersive view: http://files.danielarndt.com/2012-Peru-Panoramas/pano-AlpamayoBC(N)2/pano-AlpamayoBC(N)2.html

This panorama was shot at the northern base camp of Alpamayo at an elevation of 4533 m.  Here, the trekking ended, the donkeys that had carried most of our equipment up to this point turned around, and we continued our trip on steeper terrain.  It would be two more days of glacier travel until we reached the high camp at the base of Alpamayo from which we set out to climb the summit.
