Sunrise in Patagonia

For many photographers, sunrises are kind of cliche. Pretty colours in the clouds is kind of an easy way out to get an image that appeals to people. Well, here are mine anyway. In Patagonia, a day without wind is not common, so when it is calm there is a chance for fog to form over the rivers and wet lands adding to the feeling of the morning. All these shots are from one morning where the horses came over for a visit, as did a young fox. The soft pink skies were in the opposite direction of the hard orange sun rise.

Branding Cattle in Patagonia

2018-01-04

One of the highlights of an annual trip to Argentina is the chance to watch the Gauchos on the Tecka Ranch round up and brand the cattle. The gauchos are joined by their children who are on summer break from school, and they all seem to enjoy the event. The process they use seems hardly changed by modern methods.

Once you are out of the cities, then the famous Icelandic Horses and sheep become very interesting photo subjects.

During a fishing trip to Patagonia at the Tecka Lodge, we got lots of opportunities to see horses around the ranch. Here are a few samples of the range of images that I got.

The fishing trip in Patagonia takes place on Tecka Ranch, a working sheep and cattle ranch. The gauchos who work the ranch are an always amazing to watch.
