No Pasar by GroovyGeek No Pasar by GroovyGeek
On a visit to the Perito Moreno Glacier in Argentinian Patagonia I saw a "No Pasar" sign at the end of the trail. Having separated from the group and the tour guide who was supposed to keep us from doing stupid things I assumed it meant "keep going, see how close you can get" so I did. I guess I was lucky that there were no major ice breaks while I was down there.
...
You need to get to the Lower Balcony, ignore a few "no pasar" signs, hop over the stone fence then carefully go down a pretty steep hillside to get there. And don't hate me when you have to go back up, it is not pleasant :-)

It is a crime not to if you live close by. At least you are on the same continent :-)

that is just amazing! think you got the perfect sky to contrast with the glacier. as always the lines are great and really like how you included the bare hills in the background

Gives the eye a place to "exit", doesn't it?

exactly! and brings the eye right back in for me as well, also gives it a feeling of depleting beauty
