  1. Woah!
    The scenery is wonderful but it is the photographer whom I take my hat off for. What a capture!
    By the way, the penguin on the right, the furry one, looks exactly like me when I was a kid. LOL! 😀

    • Just like the Patagonia clothes company, huh? LOL! We were in the southern tip of Patogonia in Argentina. You are thinking of the Chilean parts of Patagonia including the fjords, Beagle Channel and Torres Del Paine National Park. We were there several years ago and it is unbelieveably stunning also. Cheers to you and thanks for the chuckle~

  4. Cindy, I like the variation here. From the very small, to the panoramic, you framed it all so invitingly. I especially like the shot of the slatted bridge mid-hike for perspective, and the poppies!! Wizard of Oz has nothing on that vibrant color! Amazing, and amazing…it’s on my bucket and PAIL list!!

  5. Penguins DO always look like they’re smiling! Lovely the way the clouds reflect into the water, just like a mirror. All of these are such lovely pictures — it looks like beautiful weather graced you for this trip!

  7. I find myself struggling for adjectives every time I visit your Blog, Cindy! Your Photography is mind blowing. It is such a treat joining you on these pictorial excursions. This lightning tour of scenic Patagonia is no exception! Those penguins do look happy, don’t they?

    I wrote a poem, a short time ago, about wild horses. Your photograph would be a brilliant companion piece. Might I borrow it for a future post? I would of course credit you fully and link it to your site.:)

    Cheers,
