Before I tell you a little bit about this photo, I want to invite you to follow me on Instagram this coming week for some amazing pictures of one of the most exotic places on Earth: Tierra del Fuego!
Tomorrow I begin the long journey down to Ushuaia where, on May 23, I will join the Adventure Travel Trade Association, Patagonia Chile, Tierra del Fuego Argentina and an awesome group of people from the adventure travel industry to discover some of the most amazing adventures this region can offer.
And so! I recently went camping back to Boca de la Sierra, and this time me and my camera were up in time for one of the most magical moments you can experience in this spot: sunrise.
It starts as the Sun begins to rise and soft light starts flooding into the canyon, but the real magic happens when its direct light starts creeping in it. The surrounding hills get covered in a veil of bright orange glow and bounce beautiful warm light onto the landscape still in shade.
Once there’s enough orange on the hills, it’s easy to find their reflection on the small bodies of water you can find all over, which creates a lava-like effect on them.
With all the beautiful moments, memories and sights this place has given me, it’s still and will always be one of my favorite get-away places close to home.
Oh! and in case you’re wondering what that big hose on the left is, that’s how local farmers pull water down from small dams they built higher into the canyon to water their crops. You can see it again in a previous picture of this place that I uploaded here and in my Instagram, and you can even see the discreet dam in the background. Can you find it?
