I was grounded for almost a year, and now able to travel and do photography. I am starting with Conguillío Revisited.
Located South Central Andes, Parque Nacional Conguillío is also known as the Umbrella park, due to its particular shape. The Araucaria Araucana tree looks like an umbrella, giving the nick name to the park. The Llaima volcano ash covered a large portion of the park.
Our first time to the park was about 40 years ago, where I made just a few images. Went back again 10 years later with a Medium format film camera and would not return until now. Since my last visit Llaima volcano had 2 eruptions, changing some parts of the scenery and resizing lake Conguillío. The volcano ash and terrain would be perfect for a movie of astronauts walking on the moon.
Although I wanted to have cloudy days for the photography, I had deep blue sky and warm weather. The blue sky tainted some of my images that I had to adjust with color corrections.
I made random selection of the revisited photographs made during this trip at Parque Nacional Conguillío. I will be publishing them in following blogs posts as well as Instagram.
