[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Taken from the administration office of the Torres del Paine National Park. On the left you can see the "Cuernos del Paine" and on the right back, under the clouds, the Torres del Paine. It was difficult to take a picture like this on those days. I spent almost a week hiking there but under the heavy rain so just the last day when I was heading back to Puerto Natales, I could take this one.
PS: I added a bit of glausian blur and did some colour balance and contrast to enhance the dramatic skies.

Dramatic landscape!! I love the viewpoint and the scarves of snow on the peaks. Excellent!!

Brrr, how threatening these mountains look with their sharp edges and steep flanks.
But all in all a very nice scenery !
The clouds in the center of the picture seem like a (snow)man climbing out of the mountains :-)

Eso si que es un paisaje impresionante, de esos que te dejan sin aliento. Increible.
Mis mas sinceras felicitaciones por este trabajo con esos colores y esos cielos.

Hi Alejandro,
This is magnificient. The mountains looks so scary and very wild, unlike anything that I have seen elsewhere. Great shot.
