Visiting the National Park of Tierra del Fuego (Earth of Fire), called so because the first navigators saw burning fires done by the natives to keep warm, we arrived at this mystic corner
Here we are at the very south of South America as is shown on the map, Buenos Aires in at 3079 km (1913 miles) and Alaska at 17.848 km (11090 miles)
As there are always some discussions with Chile about who owns this far away territories a flag (argentine one) is seen placed strategically in some points like the one shows here
Note about the indians: Saw some pics of the last ones taken by a french woman, they were nake, protected from the cold only for paintings

another attractive autumn composition from you with great colours and sharpness. The green board and the flagpole with the white base together make a nice focal point in the foreground. The orange leaves contrast beautifully with the clouds and the bright blue sky. Thanks for sharing and have a nice evening.

Bonsoir, chère Maria,
L'automne bénéficie toujours d'une aura particulière, une saison qui a le don de transformer la nature en un tableau de maître.
La joliesse d'ensemble est très agréable à contempler.

Based upon your image and note of Tierra del Fuego, I would enjoy visiting this National Park and learning about the culture.
Thanks for sharing

Salut Maria, from the far far South. :)
Funny you mentioned the flag, it was actually the first thing I noticed for some reason...and so, I assume this is indeed Argentina?!! Another lovely Autumn image full of those beautiful colors and tones.
There's some really interesting light in this shot, subtlety layered to create a mystical effect. I must say, I'm also very intrigued by the French women you mentioned. :)) I think I'm the one actually in the Earth of Fire right now with the scorching temperatures, but I'll take your word that this is actually the proper location. hehe Hope to see more of these lovely Autumn images. Enjoy the rest of the evening. Take care.
Cheers from the top side,

Very nice photo with excellent fall colors. Make me sad because after fall the winter is following. I prefer spring. Nicely composed photo, the green board creates a very nice color contrast.
Very well done.
Wish you a nice weekend.

A corner at the far end of the world, maria, nicely spotted and taken.
The trees a bit obsecuring the mountain ridge behind( my guess only), but its beautiful autumn colors compensate for that.
Distances mentioned are incredible and amazing to realize.

It looks like this is a cute entrance to this park. The green sign stands out among the autumn colors.

Nice autumnal picture, the colors are indicative of this season indeed. I like the including of the flag and the information table. It is an extra way to mark the location. Very well done!
