Raw Patagonian horizons stretching all the way to rough coastlines in Newfoundland and an abundance of wilderness wonders in-between: from azure glaciers, psychedelic lagoons and altitude canyons to ash-spewing volcanoes, jungle greens and soaring falls.
glimpse: CHANGE | Seeing it from our tiny and perishable human dimension, earth seems immutable. Rock-solid cliffs look like they always have been and always will be. Yet, the face of the earth is changing as it ages, just like ours, just a little slower. Future generations will have to redraw the physical map as erosion, climate change and tectonic movements will have their say. And tectonic change is bound to happen on that political map too, as society gets its way, pushing or erasing arbitrary borders with pencils or tanks. We’ll all be moved by this constant and inevitable change, one way or another, literally and figuratively. Those, desperately clinging on to the known, might frown and tremble. Those, welcoming the unkown might find beauty and comfort in the embrace of change.
glimpse: AUTUMN SNOW | But winter wasn’t early, nor was autumn late; it was simply a different place, a moody place, where, unbeknownst to him then, snow fell whenever it so pleased.
