Photo of the Week: Highway to PatagoniaBrendan van SonDecember 8, 2010PhotographyTravel Photography Blog11 Comments 0 Photo of the Week: Highway to PatagoniaAs I left my hostel at 5 in the morning my mind could not help but race in excitement about the things I would see today. I was heading to Moreno Glacier, one of the sites I have dreamed of seeing since I first heard about it years ago. I cruised my rental car along the empty highway as the grey glacier capped mountains drew my vision towards my destination. I stopped the car, and just stared in calm at the world I was about to explore. I wandered out to the middle of the highway took a breath of the fresh air which entered my mouth and nose but filled my body to my toes. It is these moments of absolute peace, tranquility, and sheer beauty that put my life in context, this is what it’s all about.
