Landscape photography – Perito Moreno, Argentina (10 Photos)

in hive-148441 •  10 days ago  (edited)

Patagonia has spectacular scenery. A colossal field of ice and snow is located in both Argentina and Chile. Perito Moreno glacier is part of the Southern Patagonia Icefield, which is the world's third largest ice mass after Antartica and Greenland. It is the world's largest continental, non polar ice cap, with the size of 400 km. long and 80km. wide. It is also the largest reserve of fresh water in the world. As most glaciers in the world are melting, Perito Moreno is exceptional as it is still growing. It became a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1981.

When I was in El Calafate last year, I did a full day excursion to the glacier. The first thing to do was a «mini-hike» on the glacier itself. Then we went to another side of the glacier, to the viewing platforms.

A series of steel walkways will make sure it's safe to get close enough to both see and hear the glacier. The viewing platforms are all in a safe distance from the glacier, but felt pretty close. You can feel the cool air on your face and hear the sound of big chunks of ice crash into the water, creating massive roars. The view from here is extraordinary as you can see ice collapsing in front of you without being in danger.

Glaciers have two important roles: They regulate our climate, keeping our planet cool by reflecting back 45 to 85 per cent of the sunlight. They are also an important freshwater reservoir. Only 3% of the water on our planet is fresh. Standing in front of the world's largest supply of fresh water was in a way a comfort, but the fact is that almost everywhere else the ice is melting.

Hi there, as you know I've always been a big fan of your work and many of them leave an impression on me. As such, I recall many of these images in this post have appeared in a previous post of yours. In case you're not aware, recycling old content is frowned upon by the community, and in some cases can lead to being put on the blacklist.

The Pinmapple team loves your work but we're also a great supporter of original content. We would, of course, be more than happy to continue to support you if the content has not been published on the chain before.

Also, for greater support, you can consider posting to our Haveyoubeenhere and Pinmapple community Our latest post lays out all benefit of doing so.

Hope to see your travel posts in Pinmappl again soon! 😀

Thank you @livinguktaiwan. My intention was that this post should a post with focus on photos, not in any way an article. Only with a short explaination of where it is and what it is. when I look back on previous travel posts, I see that I have often not attached many pictures and therefore simply want to post more pictures, as one of my hobbies is photography. I have not thought that it meant anything other than our individual person's own work. I see what you mean and thanks for letting me know :)

Thanks for your understanding @digi-me. There's a lot more focus on anti abuse on Hive and there have been quite a few existing users recycling old content that have been rewarded in Steem already. That is considered milking the reward pool and many have been blacklisted. I'm sure that's not your attention, that's why I raise it with you. In most cases I would have sent them directly to Hivewatchers.

Look on the bright side, your work left an impression 😊

PS unlike Hive, no one seems to care on the other side 😉

Thank you for taking time to be in contact with me. My intention is to focus more on photography, in adition to travel and street art. I just didn't understand that two similar posts could be misunderstood for beeing the same. One question when it comes to doing a post with photograpy in focus- Does all the photos in a photo post has to be different from all of the photos in the travel post from the same place as the photo post? If so, I will be glad to know :)

I do think it's a good thing is to keep the focus on anti abuse.

The problem is if you use photos to say write a travel post, you get rewarded from the reward pool. Then if you use the same photos for a photo post, the main content is the same therefore you are reaping rewards from the reward pool again with the same content. Many abusers do this with low effort content, but I know of course that is not your purpose.

As to how much content has to be different, there isn't a fixed answer to be honest, as it's all down to how abusive the communities deem your post to be. Personally, I think your account reputation, not the number but the past performance and quality makes a difference (every one is allowed to shit post every now and then 😀 ). Perhaps making sure it's at least less than half will be a good start.

Thanks a lot for your feedback. I can see you point (now!!) In the beginning I only did travel post, and now when I also want do focus on photo post the trouble starts.... I will stick to either one or at least make sure I post only one or two photos from a travel post, to be on the safe side. I appriciate you take time to answer :)
