Credit to @marcadamus - My good buddy Floris and I spent a couple weeks exploring Patagonia together in 2014, the last time I did any personal trips there. It was winter and we had a stretch of great skies the like of which I've never seen before or since. Getting the light proved the easy part compared to photographing our objective - the massive icebergs of Lago Grey. Turns out, we had to backpack about 25 miles round trip with that inflatable raft just to be able to launch it here, at a secluded cove way off trail that catches bergs drifting down the lake. We then proceeded to wait near our tents for part of four days for extreme winds producing 1-2 meter high lake waves and ice clustered so thick we couldn't launch after that. Finally, this morning, the storm broke and light filtered in! We set our course on what was for both of us our first journey through such a landscape. I had been out in a packraft many times and now lead kayaking trips, among other things, but never to see such enormous, fleeting monuments to glaciers, glittering their indescribable blue and all colors of the sunrise. As we pulled alongside this ice mirror to the sky as it turned with the current and allowed me only a brief flurry of shots that captured this perspective, for which there was no warping or blending of any kind. I knew right away it was a special reflection and special shot. Thanks for looking.
