The Sun in Patagonia

In Puerto Natales, we’re around 53 degrees south of the equator so the sun is never directly overhead. What this means is that the world is bathed in a soft wonderful light, a true photographer’s delight!

The sun always looks like it’s either rising or setting. It comes up a bit in the morning, slinks along the horizon and then hides itself again. Sunrises and sunsets are long and dramatic. The average time for dawn and dusk is around 2 hours each. This means that during summer, you get almost 24 hours of sunlight! (sunrise at 5AM and sunset at around 11.30PM!)

What a wondrous place to be!
