Encounter in the Middle of Nowhere

Photography thoughts on June 7th, 2011 by escargot

Al costado del camino

Today the ashes from the Puyehue Vulcano, six hundred kilometers away from here, fell and then swirled with the furious winds of General Roca. The sun was shining through the clouds and the whole mood of the skies fell upon the city like no other day of autumn has ever done.
The horizon was veiled with a layer of dust and smoke and ashes, merged with the misty clouds above, so I decided to venture into the wilderness around me and see if there were any reminders of the ashy greetings from Chile.

I’m back

After weeks of endless waiting the phone company managed to fix my phone and internet, so I’ll probably keep you posted in this new school year, that looks even more promising than the first.

Rainy Montt

rain

I arrived to Puerto Montt some weeks ago. It took some time until the rain stopped and summer showed its true face, well, the wind outside seems to be trying to avoid that.

I doubt anyone actually reads this self-centered and out-of-date tabloid, but what should I do, destroy it?

PS: Nah, I said I wouldn’t, why would I. I’ll give it a couple of thoughts.

So, this time mostly skies; or what happens to be in-between.





I know what I did last summer

After three months I finally selected, cropped and resized the pictures I took this summer. I will add Google Maps links to all locations involved.

Pichiquillaipe, X Región, Chile

With my girlfriend and friends we went to Puquelihue, my parent’s land in Pichiquillaipe, these are some of the few pictures I managed to take from those days. Sadly my camera was broken the first night, somehow someone’s knee used it as pillow.

Cascadas, X Región, Chile

Some days after we gathered a team and went camping again, this time to my friend’s land near Ensenada, at the Llanquihue lake and next to the Osorno volcano.

Chiloé, X Región, Chile

My sister and her friends, one of my own and myself went to Cucao, a small town in Chiloé, there was supposed to be a huge “Fiesta de la luna”, Party of the Moon, for the moment of the year when the moon more closely looks. At first we were in Castro where we visited some places and waited to take a bus to this lost town in the west coast, directly facing the eternity of the pacific ocean, after one night there we had to walk back 20 kilometers (or hitchhike, if you are lucky as my sister is) to get a bus back to civilization. Hot spot of that exhausting travel? Having a peek of a wild pudú (barely recognizable in the picture).

Argentina

Some time later with my family we went to the Argentinian Patagonia, where we traveled through the whole mountain-chain and through the desert mainly to visit an University I was interested into, secondly for vacations, it was summer afterall.
The travel was roughly said from Villa la Angostura to Neuquén.
We visited places like El Chocón, there was found the complete bone structure of a dinosaur and also fossilized footprints of the same creature.
Once we were back in Chile, we crossed the Pirihueico lake for 2 hours in a ferry, beautiful journey someone dropped even tears and not because of the chilling wind.

I beg you to understand the lack of detail of each trip, it was one hell of a work to collect these pieces of a puzzle called ‘last summer’.

PS: More to come in the next days. Less diary-like pictures.
