Photographer's Note

"Somewhere over the rainbow
Way up high
And the dreams that you dreamed of
Once in a lullaby ii ii iii
Somewhere over the rainbow
Blue birds fly
And the dreams that you dreamed of
Dreams really do come true ooh ooooh
Someday I'll wish upon a star
Wake up where the clouds are far behind me ee ee eeh
Where trouble melts like lemon drops
High above the chimney tops thats where you'll find me oh
Somewhere over the rainbow bluebirds fly
And the dream that you dare to,why, oh why can't I?"

"Over the Rainbow" (often referred to as "Somewhere Over the Rainbow") is a classic Academy Award-winning ballad song with music by Harold Arlen and lyrics by E.Y. Harburg.[1] It was written for the 1939 movie, The Wizard of Oz, and was sung by actress Judy Garland in her starring role as Dorothy Gale.[1] Over time it would become Garland's signature song.

This image was shot from Laguna Amarga (Torres del Paine NP). Somewhere over the rain we have the smoky clouds covering the Paine Tower and the rest of the park. I caught this shot just before being evacuated because of the great fire that had been devasting a huge area of this park.
This event prevented us from visiting the Grey Lake and other parts of the Park, but we were quite lucky since we could experience the very day before the Torres del Paine withsuch a great weather
Although the fire didn't allow us a complete visit of Torres del Paine NP we could say that were very pretty lucky...and this Rainbow was some kind of consolation prize for the missing visit...
