Photographer's Note

Parque Nacional Torres del Paine covers a wilderness area of 181,400 hectars.
Created in 1959, the park achieved World Heritage status from UNESCO in 1978 and is today one of Chile's most popular tourist attractions, despite frequent bad weather.
The park´s crowning glories are the spactacular Torres (towers) and Cuernos (hornes, that you can see in the photo), stark granite peaks that form part of the Paine massif.
You can see in the park guanacos, flamingos,condors and, if you´re lucky, a puma.
