I’ve just been going through the photo’s I took on my way around Mt Aconcagua and I’ve pulled together this collection of landscape shots.
Maybe like me you’ll be impressed by the vastness and ever changing colours and lines of the landscape that I saw.
At one point in the walk down the Horcones Valley Milo asked why I could be taking so many photo’s in the one valley – it was the same all the way. Maybe after seeing some of these he’ll understand.
click on any one of the photos to view as a slide show.
(Milo – your comment has been shared with me by others, and usually in a less polite manner so no offence taken, you can be sure.).
