Patagonia and Antarctica photography trip

25 days and dare I say 17 hours before I hop on the plane.
My itinerary is pretty well set in stone. Several days in Chilean Patagonia exploring and photographing in the Torres del Paine National Park. Then on to Argentinian Patagonia and a few days around the Los Glaciares National Park, El Chalten and the Fitzroy Massif. Then down to Ushuaia and the Tierra del Fuego National Park.
These are just the side trips to get me to the Ultimate Goal – Antarctica. Two weeks on a ship crossing the infamous Drake Passage to the Shetland Islands and the Antarctic Peninsula and on across the Antarctic Circle.
I’ll spend the next 4 weeks getting all my gear together. Clothing is the easy bit. Camera gear is more important. I was hoping that Pentax Australia would be able to get me the up and coming Full Frame Pentax body before the trip, but it looks like I might have to make do with my other camera bodies.
I’ll be posting to Facebook www.facebook.com/PhotoSouth when I have decent internet access, but should be able to post more regularly to my WordPress blog www.gembrook.wordpress.com as I’ll be able to do so by email and include some pictures.
