Circumnavigating the Lake

This is yet another glacier-filled lake in the mountains between Chile & Argentina. I got up pretty high on a short hike to get this shot. I had seen this bright tuft of red leaves and wanted to work it into the final product. We were on the edge of autumn and a few leaves were starting to change colors. Most of the leaves were not in any interesting compositional angles or were impossible to get near! So this one took a bit of a hike to find and set up…

Also, thanks to everyone on Twitter and Facebook that became agitated when the cop threatened to arrest me because I looked like a professional photographer with my tripod in front of the Coke museum. Anyway, Coke saw the message on Twitter and via several emails that were sent in – so thank you Gail and all the others that helped! Props to Coke Social Media (see down in comment 55) for the response.

And last, I’ll be on FOX here in Austin this (Tuesday) morning for the morning news… A little interview at sunrise. It’s midnight and I should be asleep right now… okay here I go.

  • Thanks everyone! ๐Ÿ™‚

    The FOX morning interview was postponed to another day because of a SWAT team situation in Austin. We get about 2 of those per year, so it’s always a big deal! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • You’re taking off! I love it! This is the kind of story I love to see develop over my time here.
    Great work and this image is awesome. Great that you kept your eyes and mind open to spot such a great subject.

    Hope to see the interview on here later. You know I’ll be watching!
