"Our destination in Patagonia was so remote that we were flown into the region two at a time in this Cessna. We originally thought the majority of the trip was going to be sea kayaking through the fjords, but we ended up spending a lot of time in and around these beautiful lakesLago General Carrera is the second largest and the deepest lake in South America.
"The aerial view sets the scene for the spectacular beauty of where we were goingand the landscape just builds in drama as you get closer. But to me, this picture is about the amazing color of the water."
