A couple of weeks ago I showed a photograph of Monte Fitz Roy. Monte Fitz Roy is in Argentina, although strictly speaking it is on the border between Argentina and Chile. However, you tend to approach it from the Argentinian side and so you could be forgiven for thinking it was wholly on Argentinian soil.Of course, we can get around border problems and simply state it is in Patagonia - and Patagonia falls in both Argentina and Chile.While Monte Fitz Roy is very famous, it is no more so than the mountains of Torres del Paine. Torres del Paine is also in Patagonia, but it is wholly in Chile! And to get from one to the other is quite a drive as you have to negotiate both borders and mountain ranges, but it's an amazing drive and well worth it.And both mountain ranges are amazing. Torres del Paine has so many different facets to it that you could happily spend a month photographing it. We have planned a few days there on our Patagonian excursion in March next year - as mentioned, Ignacio Palacios and Pep Roig are taking me and a group of photographers on an amazing adventure through Patagonia.On my last trip there, we didn't really have the weather, although we had lots of weather! Not that I wanted crystal blue skies, but the light seemed to struggle a little, whereas a few days before at Monte Fitz Roy the weather was both changeable and stunning! That's one thing about the mountains - if you don't like the weather, wait five minutes!If you're interested in coming along and would like to read the planned itinerary, visit www.iptravelphotography.com.au.
