Cerro Torre " the rock's scream", maybe one of the most beautyfull mountains on earth has been an obsession for the best climbers in the world, most of all Cesare Maestri and after Casimiro Ferrari with the "ragni di Lecco- Lecco Spiders", in the past century it was a race for the first man to climb to the top, rocky top or ice cap( hongo de hielo) depending on the point of view, many climbers dead trying to reach the top or descending from it.

I cannot resist not to comment on this picture. Very beautiful!! I especially like the reflections in the water. I also like the good light balance in this photo too. I dont see any shadow there. And the place is just wonderful! Well done. Sothy

Majestic, wonderful scenery and the light and colors are superb. What I like most is the mirror like water with the reflection in it and the tall blades of grass in the foreground. It is very well done.

What a majestic and spectacular place this is. The reflection is incredible and, in addition to the grass in the foreground, I love how the grass in the water adds texture. Well done.

A magnificent capture of the Cerro Torre. the atmosphere and surprisingly great weather offered perfect conditions to highlight not only thre masterpiece by God in the mountain, but of the beautiful terra that rings the mighty peak. A perfect com[position, and one I would be most proud of myself if it were my own!

Beautiful panorama of the monumental mountains. Great reflection on the water. Very good photo composition, great colors and good sharpness.

It certainly looks an inspiring mountain and I can understand the determination of dedicated climbers to master it! Man against the elements, an ongoing challenge!
Your photograph captures the beauty, the majesty and the ruggedness, of this area, with a lovely artistic composition, a fine use of the reflections and well-judged dof to capture it all sharply.

Trés belle prise, un format idéal, le reflet est trés bien maitrisé, les couleurs sont naturelles.
Un endroit charmant.
Bravo pour cette compo.

Superbe paysage avec une composition très bonne avec ces montagnes superbe qui surplombe ce petit lac et une joli verdure,bravo,belle endroit.

Votre photo de paysage est magnifique, bien construite. Elle serait encore plus belle en augmentant un peu le contraste afin d'éliminer le petit voile atmosphérique qui rend les montagnes un peu ternes.

rieccomi subito, ma non posso esimermi dal lasciare un mio commento anche sua questa splendida e originale vista del Cerro Torre. Sono letteralmente affascianto da come hai incorniciato nel verde il riflesso della triplice vetta.
Secondo me la parte bassa della foto, se ritagliata e capovolta, in formato landscape, potrebbe funzionare anche da sola. Ti faccio vedere cosa intendo nel workshop che mi sono divertito a fare su una così bella foto.

That's a magnificent nature photograph!
Sharpness, exposure, pov, dof, colosr, vertical format and composition are all excellent!
The place itself is wonderful, but you did a pretty decent photo job here! I love that reflection!
TFS - congratulations!
My warmest regards and greetings from Brazil,

An amazing Cerro Torre here, it really is the most beautiful rock on earth. It looks so dangerous at the same time if you're looking at it from the climbers point of view.
I love for the fact you took it together with the surrounding. Lake with reflection of the mountain, beautiful green grass and the rest of the mountains. Beautiful color.
My hobby was rock climbing up till 2 years ago when I snapped my elbow on one of my routine climb :-( So your picture talked to me more and realized how I miss climbing.
But this photo is a great landscape photo in overall.

Beautiful vertical presentation. Great lighting and DOF. Nicely balanced with the reflection. Interesting write up.
Have a great day,

Excellent light and great composition, well ballanced scene. The reflection of this beauty is a bonus. Scenes like this make you stand still and relect on the power of mother nature. TFS

Wonderful stuff Fred
I have been here also, no camera though, a well balanced compo and the shapes of the Cerro Torre are gorgeous. Natural colours indeed.

Ottima idea sfruttare questo riflesso per la composizione, molto bravo, tutti gli elementi di composizione sono al posto giusto e la realizzazione è senza dubbio originale.
Bruno40 (6658) 2010-07-23 10:47
This is a really beautiful place. Your photo is well balanced, good symmetry, well exposed.

a mytical and tragical place in the Alpinism history, especially with the history of Cesare Maestri and his compressor !!
Surely one of the beautiful Mountain in the World, I hope to see it one Day....

Very nice shot with superb colors. The wavy reflection of the mountain in the water makes the photo so fantastic. TFS.

Stunning shot, the foreground grass tops it off
Waylim (25350) 2011-10-19 23:33
Great shot, you are luck to see cerro torre in such great clarity and light. I saw it with some clouds but not this close up. Love the foreground of vegetation and the beautiful reflection of it on the lake. Congrats.

I have the satisfaction of having a photo of this extraordinary mountain in my TE gallery as well.
You have found a great POV with nice reflection in the foreground. Very picturesque scene, great work,
batalay (35583) 2014-03-03 20:13
What a spectacular photo of the Cerro Torre. I know that in Patagonia there are mountains reminiscent of this beauty, but this is one that I was not familiar with. You've photographed it to perfection, with its reflection in the melt pond.
PiotrF (8630) 2014-06-10 11:15
Majestic, wonderful photo of the Cerro Torre.Excellent contrast picture with reflections in water.Interesting and unique place. Beautiful color contrast.Superb landscape composition with amazing depth. Congratulations. A good presentation.

I'm not much active, but I could not resist when I saw this amazing view and you captured it very well. Great job!
fritzi007 (5352) 2015-01-18 13:39
truly a masterpiece, beautiful landscape photo, very good information!

This also is an area that is like taken from my dreams.Like an upgraded version of Norway with even higher and more dramatic mountains and even more remoteness. But as you mention, it can be fatal for some.
Your framing here is wonderful and it shows the diversity of this region. I never get tired of these photos with green landscapes in contrast to distant white mountains. TFS!
