The day we took a boat ride to visit ‘Los Glaciares National Park’, I couldn’t have imagined even in my wildest dreams just how breath-taking it would be. It was my first ever visit to the south of Argentina, and I was transfixed. I could not stop staring at the sights which were surrounding me, from the towering shards of ice to the mesmerising colour of the water, I had never seen anything like it before. It was a cold and windy day out on the water, and I shivered as my frozen fingers hovered over my shutter button. It was hard keeping still enough in a moving boat to capture the icy giants around me, and the wind made things even more difficult. Still, I refused to go below deck for the entirety of the boat trip; the view was far too beautiful.
