Photographer's Note

It was cloudy when we left El Calafate in Argentina to Torres del Paine in Chile. By the time we cross the border, it started to rain, we stopped a couple of different outlook but couldn’t see much, and it was late in the day, got to the camp site at Pehoe lake and settled down for the night.

In the middle of dinner, the sky cleared up, the Cordillera del Paine presented itself, we got up and ran out to take a few pictures. We were not the only one who left the dinner tables. It seems everybody was also waiting for this moment for sometimes. After dinner, it was still very nice but a bit too dark for a good picture without a tripod.

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.
