Day Tripping around Ushuaia, Argentina


Here's a series of photos made in and around the city of Ushuaia in southern Argentina. We'd arrived after a brief stop over in Buenos Aires.

The first few are from a sunrise shoot on our first morning in town. I was exhausted after the long flight from Australia. Getting out of bed was not easy, but it was worth it.

A miniture steam train in a local national park and a photo of graffiti along the main shopping strip adds some visual contrast to the series. The next images were made on a fantastic helicopter flight over the mountains south of Ushuaia. The flight was thrilling and included a landing on a remote beach where I photographed a rusted hulk in the bay. And then there's one of me, though I can't remember who made it.

Finally an amazing sunset lit our way back to Ushuaia. I remember dreaming that night of the upcoming tour I was about to co-run to the Falkland Islands, South Georgia and the Antarctic Peninsula.
