    Bahía Lapataia

    Since I just returned to Tierra del Fuego, I thought I´d try my hand at a local scene to get back into the swing of things.

    A hazy day on Lapataia Bay. This is definitely a view of "el fin del mundo" (the end of the world). After this point there´s only sea before you get to Antarctica. It´s around 25 km. from my back door.

    I have to decide what to do with the foreground. I guess I´ll figure it out. Then, the last minute fiddling.

    The only problem with humor is that no one takes it seriously.

    Thanks Robert and Rick! I´m still messing with the foreground. I suppose it will turn out okay. We´ll see.

    Awesome! Feel the weather. I could see someone who is into watching severe ocean weather building some sort of home or viewing station on the top of the hills. I can imagine from this what my memory has regarding some Magellan or HMS Bounty rounding the horn for a month or so fighting the weather. Not sure which ship's story I am thinking about, but it was one amazing exercise in determination and persistence.

    And there you are with your glass of wine, kicking back beside one of the foulest spots in any waters.

    Great palette and wonderful execution so far. Good depth. I shall hold my martini glass up to the monitor, not in toast, but to chill my gin and vermouth thus. Very civilized.

    YeeeeHaw, Captain Bligh!
