Harpoon [Paine Grande ice]; Torres del Paine

On our way to the mirador beyond Campamento Britanico, we stopped to admire the light on Paine Grande's glaciers. For a few seconds, sunlight grazed the top of the glacier near Cumbre Norte (the north summit), and I managed a couple of quick photographs. Then the light vanished.

I'm now in Ushuaia, the furthest south I've ever been. In a few days I begin the long journey north again.

Another sort of river.

Zhoen, yes — rivers slowed to near-geological time. I find glaciers both scary and endlessly fascinating.

Light really is magical isn't it.

Transient, too, Leonie. Need to work fast sometimes.
