Breathtaking Photos Celebrate the Wild Beauty of Patagonia’s Untouched Landscapes

“Majestic” is one word that instantly comes to mind as you browse through Andy Lee's portfolio of landscape photography. Shot on a recent trip to Chile, the photographer’s images of the sweeping scenery embrace the power and solemn glory of the country's natural beauty. In contrast to Lee's previous series showcasing Iceland's dramatic landscape from a darker perspective, his newest series, Patagonia Dreaming adopts a lighter and slightly more tranquil atmosphere.

Patagonia is a sparsely populated region tucked into the southern tip of South America. The area is known for its expansive deserts and grasslands, and of course the magnificent Andes mountain range. The majority of Lee's shots capitalize on these breathtaking, jagged peaks as they puncture through layers of wispy clouds. His use of natural lighting renders emotion from the rocky cliff faces, each photo communicating an entirely different mood.

Though the UK-based photographer dabbles in a variety of creative outlets, he states that he finds a joy in photography. This passion is evident within his landscapes, as he manages to create a distinct tone in each shot, properly celebrating the brilliance of the wilderness he photographs.
