Patagonia is one of those extraordinary places on Earth that one can’t ever get annoyed or bored with. It is packed with surprising and changing weather conditions that are able to create quasi-extraterrestrial sky formations and enigmatic light conditions. I have been fortunate to visit quite a few different and contrasting places on Earth, but nowhere else than in Patagonia I was able to experience so many different weather and light conditions in a relatively short period of time. This photo is just one such example. The day when I took it the sky was bubbling with peculiar lenticular clouds that were overcasting almost the whole sky over Torres del Paine. I was driving across the park in search for composition that would showcase this what was happening on the sky. That afternoon I took many photos with these clouds, but in my opinion this particular composition complements sky the best and makes it a protagonist.
