Patagonia is simply a dream location to experience real wildness and also some dramatic wildlife photography and the remote northern beaches of Peninsula Valdes in the north of the region are no exception. They are made famous by the resident orcas who hunt sealions on the beaches there in the autumn, and after a number of years visiting them we have prepared this new trip to capture the drama of what spring has to offer too. It is Elephant seal courtship time with the ground literally shaking as the large males battle for their harems and females are giving birth to young. Right Whales gather offshore allowing the opportunity for a private boat-based evening session, huge Magellenic Penguin colonies are bursting with life as they return ashore to begin the breeding season, cliff-nesting Peregrine return for the same purpose and offshore the orcas attentions also turn to young elephant seals off the beaches too.
This is a new and exciting trip to a region we know well and working with our Argentinian colleague Pablo Cerosimo who has been photographing here for many years now we have pulled together a totally different combination for some images of one of the remotest but most dramatic coastlines in the world at arguably its busiest time in terms of wildlife too.
