Cee’s Black and White Challenge: Trail

Black and White Photography, Photo Challenge, Travel Photography


Cee’s Black and White Challenge this week is Walking Paths and Trails.

The theme transported me back in time, to 2013, when I was exploring South America. I crossed the Andes Mountains from Argentina into Chile, but took some time to explore the Andes along the way. 

Pictured: Mount Aconcagua, the highest mountain the Western Hemisphere, standing at 22841 ft (6962 m). And it is breathtaking.

In the forefront is a trail, that winds through the valley, up to the base of the mountain. There was a strong wind that moved the clouds quickly by, creating shadows and dark pockets in the valley that at times hid the trail from view.


Side note/just for fun/not black and white: 

My first name is Andie (as in: Photographer Andie). I knew I would be traveling to the Andes Mountains. So for 3 months, I carried around a box of Andes chocolates (so yummy) so that I could, at last, stand in front of the Andes Mountains holding a box of Andes chocolates. Why? Just because. Word Play x 3.
