Impregnable by ZeSly

Poincenot Peak on the left. The Fitz Roy is in the clouds as always.

I love this kind of view where the mountain arises as impassable barrier. This is especially true here when we know that behind there is still a huge glacier and mountains behind a multitude and canals that flow into the Pacific Ocean. This is what always fascinated me with the mountain, this question about what can be out there, up there, behind.

Sky Tree by ZeSly
Sky Tree
I discovered the southern sky from Patagonia.

The first sight was a bit distrubing. I know very well the nothern sky seen from France. When I look at it, I seen immadialtely the constellations. I known where are the most know galaxies, nebulae, star clusters. The first times I looked at the sky from Poincenont Camp, I have not seen any constellation, just anonymous stars, except the Southern Crux which is quiet obvious. I had to take my smartphone with SkySafari.

I had a lot of pleasure seeing the Magellanic Clouds, Eta Carinae Nebula, the Coalsack Nebula, etc.

Here we are near Poincenot Camp, in front of the Fitz Roy, Patagonia, Argentina

Like A Sketch... by ZeSly
Like A Sketch...
This one will probably not be very popular, and yet ... I made this picture without conviction penultimate morning at Pehoe Lake while, as every morning, mountains timidly came out of the mist. It should be one of those pictures we made just to see, saying it would give anything good and we will forget it very quickly.

But when I saw it on my hard drive on the Sunday following the stay, at home, I loved it. It took me three days to find in which part of the Cuernos it was located. I have no picture at wide angle to locate it. This peak is always in the clouds.

There a strange perfection in this image. It is very noisy but perfectly clear. The result of abstract adjustments following night shots attempts yesterday: ISO 2000 and 1 / 4000s. But the noise is beautiful, kind of grain. Looks like a drawing made with a soft pencil or fusin on rough paper.

Now I think this s one of the best photo I could do in Patagonia, if not THE best.
