Photo of the Day: Lighthouse at the End of the World 9


At the bottom of Patagonia lies the southernmost city in the world, Ushuaia, Argentina. As the signs and postcards will tell you, when you are there are you “Fin de Mundo” — at the end of the world.  It is wonderful down there.

Patagonia is a place that I want to go back and spend a few months wandering in and around. In Patagonia, by Bruce Chatwin, is one of those travel blogs that is mandatory reading and his descriptions of walking around this area (he was a famous walker) for months at a time lend a sense of unreality to this place.

Often described as like the American Wild West of a century gone by, I didn’t get to wander around overland in Patagonia long enough to appreciate that, I did appreciate the great photographic opportunities that Patagonia has to offer.

This photo was taken on a half day boat tour in the Beagle Channel.  It was earlier on in my trip and I still hadn’t totally figured out how to use my circular polarizing filter yet, but randomly got it right for this shot.

I have written about how much I love Patagonia in other posts also, including one of my favorite sunrise shots – hope you enjoy.
