The day was longer the further south you go, the sunset last a long time, the light was beautiful but the cloud was very thick. We waited for a while for it to clear, but it never did, this is about as good as it got that evening. Overall I think it give a very good impression of the place.
Torres del Paine National Park is a Chilean National Park encompassing a mountains, glacier, lake, and river-rich area in southern Chile. The Cordillera del Paine is the centerpiece of the park. It lies in a transition area between the Magellanic subpolar forests and the Patagonian Steppes. The park is located 112 km north of Puerto Natales and 312 km north of Punta Arenas. Bernardo O'Higgins National Park is its neighbour to the west, while Los Glaciares National Park is located to the north in Argentine territory.

Hello Way ,
What a gorgeous picture ! For sure , the landscape is fabulous , but the colors and the light are so beautiful , and the effect of the clouds rolling over the peaks is spectacular .
One thing is a little intriguing : it seems to be autumn colors , and the picture was taken in november , so during the austral spring . ?
holmertz (56251) 2011-04-27 10:30
This is virtually a perfect composition, the bay being encircled by vegetation and hillsides and majestic clouds hanging over the snow-capped mountains. The light and the colours are absolutely brilliant.

CLODO (35188) 2011-04-27 11:27
super color contrast between the autumn leaves and the emerald sea. We can see the mountains even if the clouds are trying to hide them. The deep blue sky above the cumulus adds the final color touch to your shot.
JFS (32459) 2011-04-27 11:39
Another wonderful landscape. Perfect capture. Congratulations!

This is a masterpiece!
Suppiluliuma (3913) 2011-04-27 13:58
Sharp green bushes with the distant polarised blue give a very nice combination complemented by the Torres del Paine's peaks.
Did you have a chance to have a panoramic view as well?
stevesaba (8165) 2011-04-27 15:43
Another gorgeous upload from your time in Chile. I find this landscape photo instantly magnetic and attractive. The light is a big player in this one of course, very magical. The crop works perfectly. Very striking and enjoyable image Way. Fine work, kind regards,
SnapRJW (31629) 2011-04-27 23:27
Hello Way - This is perfection captured. A really delightful view; sunlit leaves and mountain, snow-capped peaks, turquoise water, soft white clouds in a super sky. Who could look for anything more in this superb quality shot? Top class work. TFS and best wishes Rosemary
RhodieIke (11744) 2011-04-27 23:35
Hi Way, Fantastic photo, Great colours love this scene, Well done, Cheers Iain.
Wanda1 (15142) 2011-04-28 0:25
The special colours of rusty reds, golden yellows and gentle greens frame the blue lake so well, and of course the light makes all the difference. Love the snowy peaks shrouded in clouds in the distance, it seems like a world away.
samson (1836) 2011-04-28 1:03
This place is fantastic. Lovely greens, needle sharp snow capped mountains and a beautiful blue lake all in one.
Bruno40 (6658) 2011-04-28 2:43

Uma foto 5 estrelas :) , que paisagem deslumbrante com uma luz magnifica , belo momento , parabéns!!
Um abraço Gonçalo
InasiaJones (31566) 2011-04-28 20:27
A stunning and creative view over Torres del Paine, less dramatic than the usual extreme weather photos. By presenting this landscape within its surrounding and under such nice light makes it appear more "tamed"...
I have to admit that this is the first time that I see the proximate vicinity of this location and I appreciate the fact that it seems to be intact - no viewing platform like at Grand Canyon. It must be a real delight for a photographer to see the light shifting around such an incomparable setting.
Bergenphotos (2908) 2011-04-30 15:07
Do I really need to say anything...'cause I'm speechless! The landscape is fantastic, and you did an excellent job capturing it!
Atousa (7131) 2011-05-01 7:49
Seems to be the paradise!.. the excellent management of light has made the shot pleasant to the eyes.. I like the inclusion of the narrow path which is really inviting.. a lovely presentation.. tfs
Best regards, Atousa
Charo (51212) 2011-05-01 15:15
The scenery is wonderful and the photo can not be better done.
Wonderful light and colors with a splendid view. Bravo!
eversmile (11636) 2011-05-02 0:06
I seat and I stay...
Just savouring the sensation of peace and loneliness that comes out from the view. I am always surprised to find such a feeling in almost all your pictures, as if there was not a living soul for miles around. I don't know if you find specially isolated places, where you are indeed, completely alone,(and if so, how many hours of walk it requires to reach such places?) or if it is just a question of POV ?.... But the result is impressive anyway.
The light here, is fantastic; with an heavenly and magic atmosphere created by the strong contrasts. Completely magical, almost surreal with a remarkable exposure... I like very much how the clouds seems to protect the landscape, like a bird, wings spread, (even shaped as Hedwig, the harfang of Harry Potter):) The POV is very well found, thanks to this opening in the vegetation, that lets us see the spectacular landscape. The result is mindblowing,captivating; I can't take my eyes off it.
Angshu (56760) 2011-05-02 10:21
What a delightful light! The colours almost surreal as they get highlighted by the angled light. Also beautiful are the peaks of jagged mountains enveloped by the clouds. What a place indeed! Fantastic picture!
quillo (11856) 2011-05-02 11:32
Hola amigo Way:
This is a wonderful image of nature in its fullness,
the contrasts of color, light and definition are great,
the result is pleasing and beautiful.
Thanks for sharing.
Un abrazo y feliz noche.
kiasari (62) 2011-05-02 23:24
What a nice phoro! You chose a a good POV and framing to take this shot. I really like the colors of the photo. Well done!
AiresSantos (56155) 2011-05-02 23:28
Beautiful satured colors in this nice picture of the lake in Patagonia
Fine POV, beautiful white clouds
sacimar (27539) 2011-05-03 9:49

Your gallery is a real treasure !
Thanks for sharing,
fabianoleite (11813) 2011-05-03 17:48
Wonderful landscape. I specifically like how the clouds and the snowed mountain tops mix together. And, on the foreground,vivid colors, in a great contrast. Congratulations!
abmdsudi (56388) 2011-05-03 21:41
This is just such amazing place and your photography and timing for the lighting are just beautiful. A stunning shot with a lot of mood in it and fabulous rich colour combinations and tonal. Superb landscape from the other end of the earth, what a difference in vegetation of the fore and middle grounds with the spectacular iced peaks in the far distance and awesome turquoise lake. The light is very striking indeed, love the angled sunlight picking out the tops of the vegetations and mountains slopes, and it adds a lot to the scene boosted by the great sky and clouds over the mountains. Great composition, exposure, extremely sharp and crsipy - the air must be so clear. Superb fg detail and the contrast and break between each color is held up nicely in this image. Excellent scenery from a great rugged and wild country and you have painted this scene through the lens with your eyes! Brilliant capture, Congrats, TFS
mkamionka (39209) 2011-05-05 1:52
spectacular view and presentation. I like the grat evening light so subtly touching the landscape here.
The clouds add a lot of dramatism here not hiding too much.
You have found a great POV and the composition is very well thought through.
Excellent capture, makes me want to go there again,
jimkil (1706) 2011-05-07 0:05
STUNNING, you have excellent light, colours and composition, while the sharpness is perfect here.
Well done Way
shevchenko (20548) 2011-05-11 23:35
Nice colourful nature view, good pov to show a lake surround by clump and mountain, lovely beautiful geographical feature, distinct image, well done.
Colombiana (2955) 2011-05-17 21:00
What an unbelievably delightful image. The snowy peaks in the back contrast so nicely the warm and autumnal tones in the foreground. You must have felt like in paradise in beautiful Patagonia.
pablominto (53746) 2011-05-19 22:58
Just like an old classical painting, with the wonderful light and the pin sharp details in the landscape!
And it is an amazing landscape, with the lake leading up to the snow covered summits in the back...
macjake (70519) 2011-06-01 4:00
i'm very jealous! one day i'll make it to this fine country!
a beautiful landscape scene! full of life! full of color and contrasting elements.
I can see why people are drawn to this photo.
the clouds, mountians, and aqua water are splendid
maloutim (9639) 2011-06-08 2:13
This is a lovely picture and I think it was better that the clouds didn't lift altogether.
They give a very good impression above the snow-covered peaks as if the sky wanted to blend with them !
As for the lake and the golden vegetation around, it's simply delightful.
TFS and have a very good day !
Elaine_Blath (8509) 2011-06-28 3:53
this is such a beautiful landscape, the sunset light feels so warm under the magnificent Torres peaks....
Well done, Ivana
Crispilandia (842) 2011-06-29 4:20
Wow, a landscape ectacular. Well samples the reflected light in the picture, playing with it and creating these colors. A perfect sharpness and contrast.
It's really beautiful, the frame showing the snowy mountains, the lake and the plants in the foreground as hiding what if we're going to find.
A GREAT job!
sacavem (18620) 2011-07-22 8:17
102 points :)
This magnificent composition deserved 10 points.
Very beautiful landscape with lovely colours. Amazing tones, very good sharpness and very well framed.
TFS and greetings,
plimrn (21344) 2011-07-25 0:14
...and here I thought you got skunked in Patagonia. The light is wonderful as it turns to foreground foliage to golden tones. The warm tones provide good contrast for the cool blues of lake, mountains peeking through the clouds and sky. It's a favorite for me,
pedrodk (40) 2011-07-29 3:08
Superbe composition avec un traitement tout en douceur...
elkab (4951) 2011-09-06 8:14
Amazing - all aspects of the shot. I just can to admire. Here the words are not necessary. All perfect done
