Southern Skies

3 Feb

The first thing about we noticed about Puerto Natales, Chile was the sky.  It took us a while to figure out what’s so captivating, but we finally realized that the sky looks bigger somehow than in other places.

We’re pretty sure it has something to do with the clouds.  We’ve never seen anything like it elsewhere, but the clouds here are layered in the most incredible ways and it makes the depth of the atmosphere seem even more expansive than usual.

Our pictures simply do not do it justice.

    Wow, these are stunning shots! I can’t even imagine what it must have been like to see this in real life.

      I have never seen anything like it before…if you get the chance during your travels, you should try to get somewhere in southern Patagonia!

    I’m sorry, those shots are A-some, so if they don’t capture it, I can’t even imagine what it really looks like!

      I look at them now (a few days later) and can see that they are good pictures, but I’m telling you, while you are seeing it in person, you just can’t get over how HUGE it is…it’s THAT spectacular! We actually found a photo book in town that was filled just with pictures of the clouds and sky of Patagonia. I may look it up on Amazon once we get home.
