Torres del Paine National Park, Chile

Technical Details

Velvia 50 (pre 2007) Film

Exposure not recorded

"This shot shows the top of the Cuernos del Paine, which reach over 8000 feet, receiving the first rays of the rising sun one morning. Having only arrived in Torres del Paine National Park the previous day, it was a great stroke of luck that this spectacular sight presented itself on the first morning. particularly given the changeable nature of the weather in the park in autumn when the shot was taken. The recent fall of snow on the mountains helps to enhance the atmosphere of this awe inspiring scene. This amazing reddish morning light only lasted a few minutes before the sun rose higher."
