Photographer's Note

This one is the first of a series on the "Los Glaciares National Park" in south Argentina.

The southern Patagonian ice field feeds some glaciers, of which the "Perito Moreno" is possibly the most photographed. These glaciers flow into "Lago Argentino", which is Argentina's largest fresh water natural lake.

One of the ways of seeing the glaciers is by boat, and usually the first one is the Upsala glacier. The morning I started my sailing there was a heavy storm that made unsafe approaching Upsala's face, so all we saw of it were some icebergs floating on the lake.

(Luckily, later the weather improved so we could get very close to other glacier's walls).

I am posting three images (this one and two more as WS), which are basically different views of icebergs and a sister ship making the same route). I like this one more... by a very little... so it is ok if someone tells me that one of the WS photos is better ;-)!

Depending on the light the ice can be totally blue. This is produced by the compression of the ice in the glacier (it takes hundreds of years).

I hope you like them and all critiques are welcome!
