Photographer's Note

Ushuaia, the southermost city in the world to date. This shot was taken from the same spot this photo was taken.
At the left side you can see the main dock which serve merchant frieghts and luxury cruise ships heading for Antartica or other exotic locations around the continent. You can also spot the orange tower of Iglesia de la Merced. Behind the Yacht-fested harbor you can see the airport and also the construction of yet another hotel. In the background you can see the freezing waters of the Beagle Channel and the wild peaks of Isla de Navarino, Chile.
When first discovered by the british colonists, Ushuaia was a desolated prisoner town that boomed following the attraction as the "end of the world" and also as a base for luxury excrusions to Antartica.
