Landscaper photographer Artur Stanisz has spent the last few years hiking and photographing some of the world’s most remote areas, including a recent trip to Patagonia. While in the Salto Grande Rio Paine and Torres del Paine range, he experienced the ever-changing Patagonia weather, mainly the strong, harsh winds that create fast-moving clouds and cause the sky to change colors constantly, allowing for pictures like this:
Stanisz says the constantly changing weather means you never know what you’re going to get. He waited three days for the rainy, snowy weather to improve so he could capture a clear, beautiful shot of this location. What he got was better than anything he expected.
“When I saw what was happening on the sky that morning, it was like a candy in my mouth. A very strong wind, caused clouds to move rapidly. The light was constantly on the move influencing changes in the colour of the sky. When I was watching these quickly moving clouds, I feared that the light would never appear. I was really thrilled when for a few minutes the sky exploded with these candy like hues.”
Stanisz used a Nikon D800 and a 14mm focal length to capture this shot.
