Torres del Paine National Park in Chile....... one of the natural wonders of the world, and a place I keep returning to in my mind. Georgette and I hiked to the towers on a perfect day, though in the early going, it seemed that they might be shrouded in cloud, which they often are.

The final kilometre involved a scramble up a steep rock pile, and then the towers, with an incredible alpine lake at their feet, opened up before us. Total length of the hike there and back was about 22 kilometres. My arthritic knees were killing me during our return journey, and I owe a lot to our guide who provided distraction by engaging me in good conversation. One of my best days ever.

Several of these photos are reworkings of photos posted earlier. (I keep finding new ways of enhancing them, hopefully for the better.)

Mayara, looking southwest towards Georgia Strait and Vancouver Island from Lighthouse Park in West Vancouver.

Georgette and I will soon be seeing Mayara, her husband Victor, and her mother Edi in Rio de Janeiro. In two days, we are flying down to Peru to begin another South America adventure.  :-))

I send a heart-felt thank-you and greetings to each of you: +Monika Verma , +Maria Eugenia Granero , +Francesco Scortecci , and +Jordi Navarro . Yes, Jordi, we were lucky with the weather. Using zodiacs, we were able to get ashore onto the Cape itself. We visited the monument to the thousands of people who had lost their lives sailing around the Cape.

Introduction
G+ Circles: If you add me to one of your circles , I will circle you back if your profile includes your photo and provides a reasonable amount of information about you and your interests. I will not circle those who conceal or misrepresent their identity,  or who are trying to sell me something, or who show hatred towards others. I enjoy very much seeing the work of other photographers, including newcomers to this medium.
 
If you comment on one of my photos, I will make every effort comment back. I love receiving +1's on my photos but rarely have the time to acknowledge them. 
 
I grew up in West Vancouver and attended UBC where I honoured in Political Science. I've lived in Vancouver all my life. I am in my second marriage - to a beautiful, wonderful woman and soul mate, Georgette. We married in 1997. Since my retirement, Georgette and I have travelled to Europe, India and Nepal, Southeast Asia, Australia and New Zealand, Morocco, and most recently, South America (Ecuador, Chile, and Argentina.) My passions include writing, movies and music of all kinds, browsing the Internet, cycling, hiking, and keeping fit at the local community.
 
I became interested in photography at an early age. During Grades 11 and 12, I was lead photographer for my school's Student Annual, which required that I develop and print all my photos. My cameras included a Rolleiflex (Tessar) and later, 2 Leicaflexes.
 
I bought my first digital camera, an Olympus, in 2005, and was instantly hooked. I especially enjoyed being able to PhotoShop my photos. It was like having my darkroom back, only better! I have used a Nikon D80 since 2007. It is my constant companion.
 
Sharing photos through Picasa and G+ has opened my eyes to many new ways of approaching photography. I've learned a lot from other photographers, and I believe I've become a better photographer as a result.
