Lago Nordenskj÷ld is named after the Swede Otto Nordenski÷ld who discovered the lake in the beginning of the 20th century. The outfall of Nordenskj÷ld Lake consists of a waterfall known as Salto Grande.
This is a view along the trail to Mirador Cuernos.
We left the car at the Salto Grande Waterfall trailhead and we followed a well-marked 1 hour trail.
Viewpoint ôMirador Cuernosö is visible in this picture at the end of the path. You may spot there three tourists enjoying the view. If you want to see the view from the mirador for yourself click here.

one more nice presentation of the Lago Nordenskj÷ld,with the earthy path to lead the eye to the lake and after that to the snowy Mts.I like the beauty of the place as its singularity.
Have a good weekend,Danos

Zazdroszczę Ci zawsze widokˇw. Fantastyczny jest w Twoim wykonaniu świat. Trudny temet podjąłęś w tym zdjęciu czyli prezentację atmosferycznych gˇr (super wyszło). Trochę straciły jezioro i te trawy na pierwszym planie, ale niestety wszystkiego nie da się przekazać w jednym zdjęciu
Fis2 (99794) 2011-11-04 13:23
Ciekawe i piekne widoki pokazujesz.
Jak zawsze wykonanie eleganckie.

this is an incredible landscape, and your picture displays its beauty very well. the composition is very well balanced, the path leads nicely to the lake, whilr the lines in the cloud formations lead the viewer to the mountains. the colours are fantastic. as always your depth of field and sharpness are perfect.

Hello Mariusz - The pathway leads us through the soft green shrubbery to the turquoise lake. A superb FG which is beautiful in it's own right. Backed by the sharply peaked mountains and sky beyond it becomes part of a spectacular landscape. What a place! Excellent shot with finely captured detail. best regards Rosemary

Another fantastic shot of the other part of the world, the scenery is breathtaking and you captured it masterly. thanks for sharing and approaching us to such marvels!

Superb mountain scenery rendered in gorgeous colors, good handling of light and clarity, excellent pictures and well done.
macjake (69223) 2011-11-05 5:03
I see you're having the same problem as i am with the continuation of points....oh well...we all know this one is very worthy and of high standards.
again, what attracts me to this are the variations in texture and contrasts in forms.
the 3 layers are all so vastly different from each other, i guess 4, if you want to include the skyline.
Is this one HDR?
beauty of a shot, very sharp, clear, and exposed to a T.
delpeoples (58618) 2011-11-05 5:40
Hi dear Mariusz
This series really is spectacular, one after another, the shots are absolute stunners. You couldn't have asked for a more attractive sky and the way you've composed it gives the optical illusion of the pathway following the striations in the sky. Beautiful rich colours, incredible depth and as I said before, composition of the highest quality. Congratulations.
have a good weekend
ecmel (1367) 2011-11-05 6:13
A perfectly well balanced composition with snowy mountains, turquise lake and interesting steppe vegetation. But most of all I like the sense of wildness.
jlbrthnn (76037) 2011-11-05 6:51
This path guides us towards the lake and the mountains. The centring is excellent. The neatness and the depth also. The landscape is fantastic. Excellent light and colors. Bravo.
Have a nice day
Longroute (19396) 2011-11-05 8:37
Just when I was going to catch up with your previously posted photos you post a new one!!! (:-)
Well, this is too good to let it go...
When a place is so fine and exceptional (and we probably won't have the chance to go back there any more) one photo is surely not enough. I like to shoot several pictures of all the possible compositions from every possible angle or POV. This is certainly one composition which I'd have tried myself: exploiting the long foot path to create a fine depth and sense of direction. And this feature is just more efficacious because it's just in the right position to the right, pointing to the lovely peak of Torres del Paine. Also the presence of those people in the "mirador" contributes to focus our attention. The light and so the sky, it's better here than in lake Sarmiento or lake Graey and so the whole image is more clear and sharp. You have done well to post it.TFS,
lgir (7307) 2011-11-05 10:27
beautiful landscape on the composition of great depth and a light and pleasant contrasts.
Thanks for sharing
tatadalou (7459) 2011-11-05 11:26
You definitely propose us a beautiful tour through the lakes of Argentina and Chile. The color of the lake is beautiful and the views are breathtaking.
Thank you for adding the location of the place, it is always nice.
vasilpro (41551) 2011-11-05 12:08
Another wonderful composition from that fabulous National park, beautiful view to the mountains, great sky, lovely light and colors, excellent POV and DOF, very good clarity and sharpness, TFS!
Have a nice weekend, Vasilis.

mimo, ze miejsce wyglada na rzadko uczeszczane jest wydeptana sciezka. Jakis slad ludzkiego zycia. Kolejny piekny widok z Patagonii. Dobra jakosc zdjecia.
Milej niedzieli zycze.
rodgerg (55767) 2011-11-06 1:17
Superb and interesdting serie and superb piece in this serie. Excellent balance on the composition with the lake left/right and the small way right/left. The clouds in the sky learn too the glnace to the superb tops of the mountains.
Have a nice Sunday,
Budapestman (82620) 2011-11-06 1:41

paololg (31448) 2011-11-06 11:38
Ciao dear Mariusz,
you have captured perfectly the breathtaking beauty of this amazing place. Rightly, you have included in the composition this small path that leads the eye to the beautiful turquoise waters of the lake and then to the mountains, sharp and well defined. Impressive the pleasant feeling of the DOF, with all the lines that converge toward the center of the photo. Excellent work as always!
Ciao, have a nice week (hoping that TE is working)
adramad (46542) 2011-11-06 16:35
That collection of pictures of lakes, each more beautiful .... dramatically this nice POV perspective, showing the vegetation of high and cold areas in the foreground, the mountains are stunning and its beauty is captivating, the sky is a poem of beauty with their color and shape of the clouds. A picture is excellent, perfect light, color and sharpness, a pleasure to behold.
Happy beginning of the week.
sacimar (26661) 2011-11-07 10:30
this is another impressive shot of Patagonia, I like it very much! the mountains and the clouds are beautiful, I like the perspective you chose following the path on the right, well done my friend,
Silvio1953 (145731) 2011-11-07 13:22
Ciao Mariusz, fantastic mountain landscape with lovely lake, excellent perspective, wonderful light and splendid natural colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
fabianoleite (11773) 2011-11-08 17:34
Incredible mountains, colors, shapes and everything. The blue of the water is unbelievable, and all the natural composition is great. Very good work, congratulations!
siolaw (38292) 2011-11-08 22:19
Another good POV on this jaw-dropping region with good compo including the small path which takes us into the landscape. I appreciate the soft, natural colours.
josepmarin (58359) 2011-11-09 1:18
a spectacular sight in this framing. The image of the wonderful Torres del Paine in background, the most beautiful mountains of the world according to some opinions, accompanied by a few very photogenic clouds and a lake with an amazing turquoise color, forms an impressively beautiful composition.
The technical execution is impeccable. Congrats.
andywo (4725) 2011-11-11 9:02
Imponuja mi takie dzikie, gorskie krajobrazy. Wspanialy kadr i niezwykle malownicze szczyty w glebi. Co tu duzo pisac - musze sie tam wybrac!
jackart (6702) 2011-11-11 12:10
Kolejna piekna fotka z magicznego miejsca. Wspaniałe, podobnie jak poprzednie. Szeroki kąt ygeneroał znakomitą perspektywę i niezwykle dynamiczne niebo
ib-dick (15) 2011-11-14 11:08
I loved this picture!
Waylim (25502) 2011-11-14 17:51
Another wonderful shot, It started raining on my way here, and it was cold, we were force to turn around and I wanted to stop here again when it was sunny but we has to leave. So it great to see your perspective here. Great use of the path to lead us to the lake, beautiful and natural colors.
mauro61 (52857) 2011-11-15 7:57
l'inquadratura Ŕ molto bella con le nuvole che sembrano uscire da dietro le montagne.
Ottima definizione con un bel FG.
nikkitta (17066) 2011-11-19 8:51
Great time the Winter that gives time to search and discover some wonderful captures like this one
BG quite impresive with the snow covered mountains
Like the color of the water, the sky and the path that lead to the Mirador, well chosen POV
Learning about the south from your notes
Vasa (515) 2011-11-22 8:50
The color of water (on three photos) is so attractive and you get a landscape for all souls. Thank you Mariusz for your witness - so glad to see you again. Friendly
kiks (12735) 2011-11-27 3:19
This is so beautiful. I hope some day i can see it with my own eyes! I love your composition usig the path tolead the eye into de lake and mountains. Also like te softness of colors. Very natural done.
s_lush (16242) 2011-12-03 13:46
This is an absolutely beautiful view of the lake, peaked rocky mountains covered with snow and wonderfully clouded blue sky. The composition, quality and colors are quite perfect. Excellent capture and informative note!
abmdsudi (55208) 2011-12-05 1:58
Beautiful landscape! one of the most amazing landscapes I've ever seen and those peaks look spectacular. You had an amazing time there, it is the most amazing part of the world simply awesome with fantastic skyscape. You have captured the majesty of the place really well. Excellent shot, Congrats
Angshu (56758) 2011-12-07 1:48
Quite a lull in activity! The path creates a good lead-in! The turquoise water is beautiful and the mountain peaks so identifiable create a fine BG. The clouds radiate from the centre of the picture which also adds the beauty. Fine picture!
Bournazel (0) 2011-12-13 3:17
a place where I dream to go ....
You choose to show us the foreground wich is very interesting too
The sky and the clouds shape was fantastic that day

Mariusz, chylę czoła przed Twoimi krajobrazami :-)
Miejsca, ktˇre pokazujesz są niezwykłe!
kennyblack (4207) 2011-12-31 9:33
Hello Mariusz, on your beautiful gallery of pictures, it is difficult to choose one because they are all beautiful. Since I am attracted by nature I chose this beautiful view of the mountains made an excellent and professional mode. Clarity and colour with a perfect and spectacular POV. Thanks for the post.
Greetings and best wishes for a good and happy 2012 ... Marino
Robert1969 (7160) 2013-01-23 7:39
Beautuful landscape an a beautiful picture.
The great point of view and composition
creates a very nice depth (the path) and
calmness (nice open space). Light management
is also great: you cab see every detail
and the colors are warm and bright.
