Patagonia is a sparsely populated region at the southernmost end of South America that spans the lower sections of Argentina and Chile and covers some 400,000 square miles. English travel author, Bruce Chatwin, once wrote in his novel ‘In Patagonia’ that the area was “the farthest place to which man walked from his place of origin.” This idea conjures images of a desolate part of the earth, far removed from the reach of mankind.
Filmmaker Martin Heck’s from TimeStorm’s Films latest offering seems to abide by Chatwin’s observation.
Though the images captured by Heck are no doubt beautiful, the jagged, looming snow capped mountains, smothered by the transient clouds in the ever-changing light reveal a wild and unpredictable place. That being said, the images are amazingly stunning and if the film doesn’t invoke feelings of pulling a Walter Mitty right now, then I don’t know what will.
We have written about Heck’s work before with his awesome timelapse video of the Atacama Desert in Chile. His other videos are worth checking out as well. He explores New Zealand, Norway, and offers mind numbing images of an Volcano Calbuco (also in chili) erupting in 2015. We have done you a favor and just put them all in one place. Get ready to slip off into a daydream of pure remote wanderlust.
