Photographer's Note

After arriving Buenos Aires, we travelled on for a 20-hour bus ride going to Puerto Madryn since most of the flights going to Patagonia and southern part of Argentina are cancelled due to the Volcanic Eruption in Chile. The bus ride was worth it, seeing this place erased all the tire and hassle during the trip.

Puerto Madryn is a city in the province of Chubut in the Argentine Patagonia. The town was founded by the Welsh immigrants during the mid 1800's who came in Mimosa, named the natural port Porth Madryn in honour of Sir Love Jones-Parry, whose estate in Wales was named "Madryn".

The place is home for sightseeing of southern right whales. Whales arrive between June and December, but during the rest of the year, tourists should be on the watch as enormous whale tail, penguins, dolphins and even flamingoes may appear.

The shot is taken near Parque Historico Punta Cuevas this is towards south of the city, the exact spot where the first welsh settlers disembarked. This served as shelter for the first welsh settlers. I'm not sure if that house on the right side is a lighthouse or a resthouse or a museum. Still researching on that, if anyone knows, feel free to inform me.

Stitched in 5 photos to have this wide panoramic view of the area.
