It is about 80 km drive from El Calafate to Parque Nacional Los Glaciares in which you can admire the famous Perito Moreno and several other spectacular glaciers. Knowing that one of the natural wonders of the world is so close means that nobody really stops along these 80 kilometers, everybody is in hurry to see the breathtaking glacier as soon as possible as spend there as much time as possible. In spite of having amazing views along the road I also lied to myself that I will stop more frequently on the way back. It was surely a very good decision to rent a car. It gave us a lot of freedom to stay as long as we wanted and stop wherever we wished. The rental car registration was HUJ224, which made me laugh every time I looked at the car, as it would roughly translate into Polish as penis 224. This is one of the views which we enjoyed along that road. We were in Patagonia in November which means it was an early spring time. You can see that the bushes are already covered with the green leaves but the ground is still partially brown.

Witaj, Nie wiem, dlaczego Cie smieszyła ta tablica rejestracyjna. To, co myślisz, pisze się przez ch (Slownik ortograficzny PWN).
Wczesną wiosna rzeczywiście to trochę inaczej wygląda. Ta droga nie była taka znowu nudna, było jezioro, na nim flamingi. Tutaj ten płaskowyz z osnieżonymi górami w oddali tez ciekawie wygląda. Fajne odbicia w wodzie krzaczków.

rzeczywiscie nudy. Nie wiem na co patrzec, czy te krzaczory czy gory w tle. Wyglada mi to na strzelone z jadacego pojazdu, mimo to technicznie dobre.

love your composition here, it is just so perfectly balanced and the light is almost magical. A classy well controlled image. Well done!

The low POV has a spectacular effect in your composition, giving an impressive depth of image for to show us an unique landscape.
The plants in foreground are a nice introduction in order that our look flies towards the majestic mountains in background.
A beautiful photo, perfectly illuminated and with a great chromatic level.

Bylaby super panoramka.

thanks to your trip to Argentina I'm discovering the wonderful places. For us Europeans, accustomed to tight spaces, it seems incredible the infinite vastness of these landscapes. You have chosen well to put the bushes in the foreground in order to make a natural frame that balances well the distant mountains in the background.

I really like the composition of this beautiful landscape, the image has a large DOF with the distant mountains, illuminated in part by a pleasant sun and the sky clouds over them embellishing the image, the foreground with the detail of water and green shrubs, reflected in, add beauty a nice effect, before the eyes of the great plain through is directed to the beautiful mountains. Well done.

inquadratura ben composta con le montagne innevate di fondo e le nuvole grigie sopra.
Curato il FG con i cespugli verdi a dare cromatismo alla scena,

A good presentation of Patagonian plains and mountains, showing how they look in springs. This landscape scene is very well composed, with the nice green foreground and the very impressive background under such a dramatic sky, and captured with very high quality. Perfectly well done!
