On a boat

On a break from my studies in Santiago, Chile I traveled to a small town in the Aysén region where I spent my days falling in love with the second largest lake in South America, Lago General Carrera in Chile and Lago Buenos Aires in Argentina. I took a ferry across the lake from Chile Chico to Puerto Ibañez to get back to the airport on a sunny, windy day.

From above the water on a boat the deep blue that shimmered into a bright teal was even more powerful than from the shore. I spent most of my time looking out across the lake at the jagged mountains, feeling the wind slap my hair across my face. Before I stepped into the moment to simply experience the ride I took some photos of the preparations to leave, and arrive, after the two hour trip.
