Trip to Tierra del Fuego
The weather is very changeable in the latitudes of the extreme south of the American continent, we are not far from Cape Horn, a myth that many sailors have faced in the face of storms of incredible violence. When they sailed along the coast in the 16th century, fires were visible from their boats, and so was called this land, LAND OF FIRE. Places of life of the Amerindians who had lived in this territory for at least 12,000 years, the natives called Selknam, Yamana, Kawesquar Yagans or even Alakaluf, most of them decimated by diseases, and sometimes suppressed outright. Today there are only a few photos (Martin Gusinde, and a few others) of their existence left. The color of fire is the “common thread” of this report, with photos I took during the fall period (April). The leaves of the trees are colored from the most subtle yellow to the most intense red, but also sunrises and sunsets with this palette of infinite colors, colors of fire.
