Flying over the Patagonian Ice Cap

Hello Friends, I've just arrived in Punta Arenas without my camping gear, tripod and spare clothes courtesy of British Airways.

The trip down from Santiago to Punta Arenas was spectacular. The day was clear and I could see the mountains of Fitzroy and Cerro Torre peaking up from the massive patagonian ice sheet. But the most spectacular view was that of Torres del Paine. The pilot made a bee line for the place and banked the plane so I was looking directly down onto Glacier Grey and the towers.

How I wished I had taken a small camera with me on the plane. And I guess this just goes to cement the idea that a camera should be portable, convenient and with you at all times.

Perhaps next time.
