Photographer's Note

It was a cloudy evening, we didn't expect it to clear anytime soon, but for afew minutes the cloud parted and Cordillery del Paine is visible bathing in the gray blue evening light. If it was not so cold I would have stay out here all night. I didn’t carry a tripod because of the long hike. I just rested the camera a flat surface of a rock. The light was fairly low by then, much darker than you see here. but with the slow shutter speed it show up much better and I like the mood.

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.
