The majestic Torres del Paine in the early morning light. It took me three days and two 4am wake-ups to get this photo. The first day I went up to checked the scene and decide where to shoot from. The second day I woke up at 4am but it was raining outside so I went back to my tent. The third day I woke up at 4am and hiked to the towers (cca. 1 hour). Fortunately the wind was not so strong and the sunrise was perfect...

the colour of the lighted rock and the matching glow in the cloud above is fabulous, and the weight of the (andesite?) boulders in the foreground really makes your title, and early mornings, entirely deserved and worthwhile

Stunning place and well-deserved shot. :-)
Did you continue to take shots to include the lake under the light?

The effort you put in was well worth it as the result speaks for itself, this capture is superb, Awesomely rugged landscape with the early morning sun breaking with a golden glow over the majestic peaks of the mountains. Well done TFS

Another striking view from you, and such diligence to get it !
The sunlight is striking, the obvious interest of the shot, and while the FG is subdued by shadow, the rocks are massive and overwhelming. The cliffs in the sunlight are quite delicate by comparison, I wonder if the one does not overpower the other.
For all that, the shot is effective, and pleasing, and certainly worth your efforts..
