Standing on the shore
Of our cosmic ocean.
• Torres Del Paine, Chile.
Turquoise waters below, blue skies above, mountains reaching towards the edges of our planet... Patagonia. When I look at photos from my solo adventures there are a few places I look forward to returning to with others. This place is one of them. Also, it trips me out a bit to think that I'm standing in an area that sits towards the bottom of our globe, as we rotate around the sun, in the middle of our galaxy. But that's because I'm from the middle of the Northern Hemisphere. I'd be equally as tripped out if I lived in the Southern Hemisphere and was standing super close to the arctic... Yes, I ponder some strange things like this, admittedly, more often than not.
I only got 20 frames of the Atlas V rocket photobombing my timelapse before my camera died, but I'm super psyched with what I got. Such a terrifyingly beautiful surprise. 15 second exposures, shot on a Rokinon 14mm f/2.4 at f/3.2 at ISO 6400 on a Canon 6D. Shot from Figueroa Mountain above the Santa Ynez valley in Santa Barbara County.
