Argentina in Panorama

Stretching from the Tropic of Capricorn in the north to Tierra del Fuego in the south, from sea level to Aconcagua at 22,384 feet, from gritty, urban Buenos Aires to untouched wilderness, Argentina’s range of landscapes rivals that of any country in the world.  Whether traveling by plane, bus, bike, or foot, the only way to capture the grand skies, murals, and vistas is with a panorama.

So that’s what we did.

The iPhone panorama mode became our best friend, equally at home on the streets of Buenos Aires and the rare air above Bariloche.  It comes closest to capturing the raw power of the scene as witnessed by the human eye, no mean feat for a phone camera.  You should still go there, though, to see these places for yourself.  Besides, no camera can capture the feeling of dancing a little tango or sipping bitter mate from the metal bombilla.
