Fitz Roy

Posted by
Barbara Lee (Oakland, United States) on 18 October 2009 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Another photo from my trip to Patagonia last year at this time. After flying to El Calafate, we took a van to El Chalten and began our trek into the mountains. This clear view of Fitz Roy greeted me after an all morning trek from the village of El Chalten to the camp at Laguna Capri. The mountain had been clouded over for 10 days before our arrival; but on this magical day, it showed itself in full glory, making the difficult hike well worth every step.

I'm in awe, not just of the picture but of your ability to climb, climb, climb, to see these beautiful sights.

this is sensational! very good close look at the peaks! very well composed and you got good light to really show them off! the swishes of clouds add a lot of character and mystery to this setting - well taken!

@KriKridesign: Kri, sure, as long as you do not sell the photograph. When you finish your painting, make a photo of it and send it to me. I would love to see your result! Happy brushing!
