Last year I spent a few days in Patagonia, mainly to see penguins, although we were also lucky to get a chance to see elephant seals and their young just after calving season. We got there from Buenos Aires via an 18 hour bus journey from the warm north to the cool south. All shots are with my E-P1, the first two are with the Panasonic 20mm f/1.7.

First, we went to Punta Ninfas to see the elephant seals, who were hanging out on the beach looking after their young.

All the following shots are with the E-P1 and Olympus 40-150mm, which performed brilliantly. PP mainly involved adding contrast and warmth.

The calves are very cute.

After that, we visited Punta Tombo, which is well worth the long journey to get to. I have a strange thing for penguins.

Punta Tombo is definitely worth a visit if anyone is in Patagonia. It is a little out of the way, but I'd definitely recommend it. More opinions here at Tripadvisor.

Some penguins were just arriving to nest while some were leaving to feed.
