Cerro Torre seen from Laguna Torre. Unfortunately I could not get a full reflection, within minutes the wind got stronger and all reflections disappeared, soon after the mountains also disappeared. The information pasted below mentions a bright-blue lake, but it was bright-brown that day.
Laguna Torre is the mountain lake on the way to the actual Mountain Torre. The site features a bright-blue lake with a majestic view of the mountain in the distance. This hike is about three hours in one direction with fairly easy walking through hills and forests. Near Laguna Torre is the Mirador Torre (Mount Torre Viewpoint), which offers another beautiful view of the mountain.

ilk ben yazim bari bugün,, ;)
Outstanding image as usual.."Outstanding" and "as usual" ?! doesnt even sound right together? but this is what happens with you,
you make outstanding shots "as usual" or "normal" which are just opposite concepts by nature.. lol
i am short of words for this one, Mr.Haddock..
Green pistachio time! :)

A superb frozen landscape with an excellent tonal range & good sharpness. The reflection in the lake is stunning. Good work!

Le contraste entre le premier plan et le second nous offre un contrast etrange chaud et froid. Le resultat est superbe felicitation Tan

This is a lovely shot. Excellent composition, very nice reflections of the mountain in the water. I love the ice coming down to the water. Excellent perspective.
Very good indeed!

Harika, dinlendirici bir manzara. Çok beğendim.

woww...... fantastic landscape
beautifully captured, the colors, the reflection, so amazing
Cormac (26565) 2005-08-04 10:40
Wow! This is really extrordinary. I think the light here is almost perfect, with a few light clouds to keep the brightness of the snow and ice down and give lots of detail in those areas. As usual your composition is great, with dark mountainsides providing a frame to the scene. Superb!
ndb1958 (9289) 2005-08-04 12:13
great landscape ... looks like a magic place ... like a fantasy place. Beautiful composition, reflections, contrast and colours. Wow!
pilpel-adom (3018) 2005-08-04 12:20
Good composition of the Torre, Tan! Yeah, I know exactly what you are talking about..in my archives are numerous pictures of lagoons blasted with wind...
iIn any case, good colors, DOF, exposure control and sharpness! That`s the biggest advantage of using a prime, isn`t it??
kebek (5438) 2005-08-04 12:54
Serwus Tan !
Well, this is absolutely marvellous landscape.
I can feel the fresh air out there. Excellent clarity, nice pov, superb light.
All the best,
lukie (0) 2005-08-04 14:09
you're approaching perfection very close with this picture. Great job !
Tue (34540) 2005-08-04 15:34
Beautiful picture again. No, as you say the reflections aren't full, but they are reall very nice anyway. Impressively looking peaks again and a fine sky as well. Good work!
Leonie (8809) 2005-08-04 15:43
Hi Tan..although a bit "overphotographed" this peak always constitutes a fine model..and your picture is beautiful..congrats!
danyy (0) 2005-08-04 15:46
Tu es dans une période de photos de très grande qualité, je les apprécie toutes pour l'instant.
Celle-ci est remarquable, et cela sur tous les plans qu'il est inutile de citer.
Aucun défaut, vraiment aucun.
Un fantastique paysage.
Bien à toi.

Ouch... this hurts! We were standing on the same sot in November 2004, but it was a grey and rainy day and we only saw the foot of the Cerro Torre... This is a very beautiful picture, Tan. The glacier is well exposed and the wrinkled reflection of the mountains in the water surface shows a bit of the chilly wind that's often present in that area. Nice and sharp picture, well done!
rbcy1974 (20758) 2005-08-04 17:13
Excellent composition. Love the colours and refelction. Not easy to make good nature landscapes. If you dont mind maybe Ill ask you some questions about the regiona s i am thinking of going there in December.
leonorkuhn (16235) 2005-08-04 17:51
Another nice glacier. This lagoon really isn't blue but is a wonderful place. Beautiful colors, sharp and lightness. Well done.
sayzey (2358) 2005-08-04 19:43
Great shot Tan, shame about the reflection as you say, but i think you shoudl count yourself lucky that you got your shot taken before the mountains faded out!
The mountain looks magical, nice sky too!
ccooper (840) 2005-08-04 21:30
Another dynamic, beautiful landscape Tan!
jjbach (9324) 2005-08-05 6:46
I like this beautiful and wild landscape, you captured with effective way. Nice colours and lighting, as always! Very well done!
sleon (9402) 2005-08-05 8:00
these mountains truly are majestic! I love the jagged peaks, the wonderful blue ice, and the beautiful reflections which are enhanced by the dark shadows of the mountains too.
carper (96) 2005-08-05 12:59
yes it is a nice one Tan,
very nice vieuw, great point to take the shot, very good light in it, great depth, very good job,
john_c (24666) 2005-08-06 14:28
Awesome colours and tones in this classic shot, and the brown lake doesn't hurt my eyes at all. The reflections are enhancing and the interesting lines and curves of the landscape is well portrayed. Well framed and cropped for maximum impact. Great shot, Tan. This looks like an enchanting spot.
jbweasle (9393) 2005-08-06 17:32
A beautiful mountainscape, Tan. You have captured the jagged peaks well. Good tones and detail in the rock balanced by a more artistic reflection in the rippling water. I was wondering about cropping a little on the right to remove some of the dark area but then thought that the right hand slope rising above the central peaks is better framing.
Jeppe (18654) 2005-08-08 16:38
Wow - amazing to whatch how different the light can be on those fine landscapes you present for us - Even with a blurred reflection and not full as well, have you managed to give us a very fine view from this remote lake - thanks a lot Tan for sharing with us.
quantabeh (5205) 2005-08-11 0:11
breathtaking scenery. nice shot. well exposed, and good sharpness. I did a workshop, if you don't mind, taking a more manual approach than the already autoworked ws. hope you like it.
everlasting (15172) 2005-08-13 3:54
Such a crisp and clear landscape. The slightly moving reflections are very nice as is the glazier falling into the lake.
toni_al (15875) 2005-08-13 12:16
Magnifique image, superbe contraste, la diferance de luminosite entre les plans augmente le sentiment de profondeur.Superbe
mightyweed (1292) 2005-08-15 21:42
this picture and the view are amazing...
PJE (20758) 2005-08-20 19:54
This is the kind of photos that one hunts down on Trek to critique. But there is little to say to improve upon. This is amazing, stunning and a delight to see. Thanks for posting
czar (198) 2005-08-21 10:04
Absolutely stunning, truly a majestic photo of an extremely beautiful country. Well done !!
mumek (20202) 2005-08-29 18:45
Next super landscape Tan!
The view at the mountains and the laguna are fantastic.Beautiful colours, sharpness and the light.Very impressive shot.Thanks for the note
fayeulle (27827) 2005-09-30 2:38
I hope it will be my next trip.
sebautourdumond (3108) 2005-10-23 9:09
I discover your gallery and you have a lot of beautiful pictures. I know this place and you capture very well the laguna Torre.
brosnea (121) 2005-11-03 5:12
Hello. Beautiful landscape! Great sky. Nice prespective you use. Good work! Well done.
mayabee (374) 2005-11-15 10:10
Oh Fitzroy, one of my favorite places in the world, I should scan one of my own photos - we saw it from another angle.
I love this photo, it's very rich in textures - the water, the glacier, the clouds. Beautiful.
bboss (3578) 2005-12-07 20:03
wow - I dont know how this one escaped my gaze until now, but I guess thats what happens when you go away. Truly a stunning image, straight to my favourites. I am so looking forward to seeing this wonderful place at some point, but will it live up to all the pics I have seen of it?
Theres nothing to improve upon here, but maybe you could have found something to create a bit more foreground, one of the mini icebergs for example. Its too good anyway
elmec (12210) 2006-01-26 14:26
That's wonderful view!
The composition and colours are perfectly!
I like it very much!
anavazao (5592) 2006-03-24 14:07
what I can say? Is absolutely great!
Good colours, details, composition, light....
saguzar (862) 2006-05-04 17:01
Excellent shot, despite light conditions. Very good composition and POV. I consider it a great photo, in a place of my country that want to visit; I hope to go there some day.
MIMACSKA (291) 2006-06-16 1:21
Ijust started to visit your album, but it will be not ease! :-) Unbelivable! You have been all over the world!!! You must be very hapy!

Muse (34942) 2006-08-27 15:02
Une superbe photo d'un endroit magnifique...
Cela me plaît vraiment beaucoup.
Les couleurs, le cadrage, la lumière, les reflets,
le perspective, le ciel.. Tout y est!
Didi (60586) 2007-05-03 6:08
A very good scan quality.
The place is great, the weather was enough good to gives you some good lihts for this magnificient composition.
anokutan (15097) 2007-06-15 16:22
Tan bey merhaba,
harika bir kare yine.dedim ya resimlerinize doyum olmuyor.bir eleştiride bulunayım bari.notlarınıza kısaca da olsa türkçe bilgi giremez misiniz?lütfen!tebrikler.
heldertbk (29) 2008-07-21 22:11
Fantastic. I like very much the mountains and sky colors. I think is too much dark in the right of the picture but after all that's ok. Everybody say Fuji Reala is an awesome film, but I never used it.
