Ushuaia in Tierra del Fuego Province of Argentina was the port of departure for my cruise to Antarctica.  It’s a touristy port proudly billed by Argentina as the “southernmost city” in the world. Yet looking at the map you can find that the Chilean “town” of Puerto Williams is in fact a little further south across the Beagle Channel.  I guess because it is only a small town it doesn’t count. Never-the-less outside of the Ushuaia city limits Tierra del Fuego is a remote region of untrammeled wilderness. The beautiful mountains are the southernmost extent of the Andes. I rented a car and birded this remote region with a couple friends I made on the Antarctica cruise for 3 days

    Well composed scene with great mix of foreground and background. The massive clouds giving way to the snowy peaks. Balancing dynamic range is this picture is difficult due to the highlights off the clouds and the shadows or dark tones from the mountains and foreground trees. This is one of my favorite pictures you have done gary.
