THE SHOT

Lonely Planet (UK) - - Chile -

Photographer Philip Lee Har­vey on cap­tur­ing the Tor­res del Paine peaks ‘The vast­ness of Patag­o­nia is breath­tak­ing, but it brings chal­lenges for a photographer: how to show scale and depth in one im­age, es­pe­cially when the weather is chang­ing by the sec­ond. We waited all morn­ing to get this shot as there was thick fog cov­er­ing the moun­tains. Sud­denly the clouds parted in the mid­dle and this view was re­vealed. I quickly took some frames be­fore the clouds blew in again. I shot this scene with a 200mm lens, which com­presses the moun­tain range, giv­ing the il­lu­sion that it’s closer that it ac­tu­ally is. Hu­mans seem small and in­signif­i­cant in these epic moun­tain ranges, so I used a per­son to en­hance this feel­ing.’ Shot on a Canon EOS 1D X Mark II // 70–200mm lens // ISO 320 // aper­ture f/9 // shut­ter speed 1/500
