Sunrise at Torres del Paine

It took me a few days to get this shot. I had to find a small, shallow and reasonably well sheltered pool that would give me a suitable reflection, then wait for the weather to behave - something that doesn't happen too often here because it is notoriously windy!

On this particular morning the wind was calm but there was a lot of cloud behind me blocking the sun. I was very close to giving up when the sun suddenly broke through and lit up the mountains in spectacular fashion. It lasted all of 20 seconds before everything went dull again. Those 20 seconds had me smiling all day :)

I'm glad we have you to wait there for us :-)
 
I had this image of you in a tent with two candy bars and a twelve pack :-)

Well worth the wait Chris, this is fantastic :)
 
:DDD, worth the wait for sure, even when it was just 20sec to see such spectacular light :))

Gorgeous Chris; it looks like a very well timed 20 seconds!
