Printing the Torres

As I collaged my photos from Torres del Paine the other day, it dawned on me that the shapes I was cutting would also 'feel' rather landscape-ish ... and so, even as I tried to embark on a new technique, I found myself once more building a collograph. And the 'quick prints' I intended to make turned into epic adventures of intaglio exploration.
