Views from the end of the world..........

Tierra del Fuego

It doesn't happen often.  
In the ordinary daily business of life, one seldom comes across a place so remote, so far removed, so pristine and quiet, that the rustle of the fox is heard in a shrub before the song of a bird chirps overhead on its flight to the surrounding snow-capped mountains. The wind seems ever-present. The sun plays hiding seek among the heavy clouds. Inland surf constantly rolls in leaving whitecaps trailing in its wake. The Kingfisher rests silently on his rocky perch, and geese stroll the shoreline, both searching for a meal. Flowers unfold brilliant petals for their brief lifespan in the always chilly air, as lime and gold lichens draped among the trees live long, healthy lives.

The beauty and serenity that is, and hopefully will remain, Tierra del Fuego National Park..............my personal memories captured here in pictures at the beginning of a journey from the end of the earth to beyond.


  1. Wow! This is so amazing! I really wish that the air in Clermont County was as fresh as it is in these pictures. I would love to go visit. I'm sure it's probably a little cold, but the beauty is breath taking.

  2. Majestic!
    The last picture shows the lupines again. I meant to comment on them yesterday. They are so beautiful out in the wild, I am in love with them. And the foamy water, and the mountains, and the wild flowers and it all. Love it!

  3. Beautiful photos Mary. It sure is a gorgeous spot.

  4. I'm so glad that there are such unspoiled and quiet areas left in the world. I may never see them, but it does my heart good to know that they exist.

  5. It all looks so amazing Mary!

  6. Isn't it just unbelievable? The colour of the water, the particular silence - I love it.

  7. Wonderful images for such an astounding place dear Mary. Your words show what an imprint it has made on your heart..
