Towards the end of my trip in Argentina, we started exploring around the edges of some of the other towns. One of them had started growing towards the lake before it started to flood. There was a whole house community over here that had to be abandoned because of the lake. It seemed like a great and unusual place for photography.
What you can’t see in this photo is how HARD it was to get to this spot! I knew it would be a good angle, and the path looked just a little muddy. But, it was one of those muddy steps where you immediately sink in knee-deep. You know the kind I mean. It’s the kind of step when you immediately feel soft dutch-chocolate-mud seep up and over and into your hiking boots. And then there was, of course, the horrible mud-sucking sound as I tried to yank one leg out while another was quickly sinking. It was a bad scene, but, priority #1 was keeping the camera safe and tidy!
