Photographer's Note

Another wide view from my trip to Patagonia. Clouds, vast expanses of land and a few sheep here and there, that's the memory I've kept of eastern Patagonia.

Only upon locating this image near the Chilean border, 35 kilometers south of Rio Gallegos, I noticed that these mountains in the distance are actually volcanic craters. I figure that we drove through the Pali-Aike Volcanic Field (thanks Google, Wikipedia et al). It's the only sign of volcanic activity in eastern and central Patagonia, a landscape formed by eroded sediments.

For the image: I think I should have left a bit more room on the bottom, but I guess I was too impressed by the wide sky when taking this image.
