I took this picture a few minutes after the entrance of the Torres del Paine National Park. It was a very atmospheric day and as we were early we decided to walk from the entrance. To our surprise most people actually took the shuttle bus and missed out a very beautiful part of the Park. To me it was great to approach the Torres massif slowly and it got more and more impressive the closer we came. And walking towards the massif made us even more itchy to go up there. It was a great decision and the additional 1.5h was nothing compared to the rest of the hike.

Hi Christian. I would like to see just a little more space in front of the bus. However that is the only fault I can find in this superb image. Technically - the composition and perspective are perfect as are the the colours exposure and sharpness. What a wonderful entrance to the park. Not only would I join you in walking to view at my leisure but I would also want to stand and take in this glorious view before moving off. Excellent TFS! Jeez! This another place in my wish list to visit.

What a great POV you have chosen to illustrate this picture, the lorry at the first part of the picture, the great landscape full of live and light, complete an awesome picture!

The light is excellent for this fantastic composition.
Very impressive indeed. And that bus - and all those stickers..
All in all very pleasing. casper :)

This is a beautiful landscape and a very nice entrance to the park. I like your very good compo because the old bus and bridge create a kind of nostalgic atmosphere as well as the landscape creates the feeling of adventure.
The colors are very nice as well.

Hi Christian, Excellent composition, your POV is very good having the bus in the left corner dose not block a beautiful view & the depth is pure quality, fantastic focus & fabulous colours, i love the cloud formation & to finish the horses going over the bridge is first class, kind regards Wilson.

Impressive landscape with rock mountain tops half-covered in clouds and this interesting little bridge in the foregorund. The colours look very natural and details are excellent.
Although I do like this old-fashioned bus with the windscreen covered with stickers, I somehow think the photo would be nicer without it.

Very good image of the Park entrance. Your POV looking doen the track and then along the bridge works well to take our eye into the scene. We pass the bus and the horses on the way. You had good light and an attractive sky wth the low cloud over the mountains. Good work and well work walking to see it.

Nun hat es ein wenig besser geklappt mit den Punkten...! Tolles Foto mit super intensiven Farben. Wirklich sehr stimmungsvoll!

Yes, what a start, the massif looks really impressive, and the colors are great.
I love the low hanging clouds, it almost looks like it is smoke from the bus.

A great view on the place I want to visit very much! I like the inviting composition with the blue-hooded bus and the cloud embraced rock formations on the horizon.
