The rock field in the foreground of this photo is the glacial moraine left behind over the years by the melting ice. I might never have noticed this perspective or taken this photo if our group had not have had to wait for our guide Diego, who had to run off and search for our missing "photo guide". The Aussie, who was supposed to be coaching and leading our group, had gone off without us at the end of our time at the foot of the mountain to take photos for an assignment that he had with Cokin. Needless to say, Diego was pissed! He is responsible for everyone's safety, and there have been tragedies, such as the time a British woman disappeared forever!
Anyway, in the end, my good fortune, for I doubt that I would have noticed this particular perspective in our purposeful hike out.
So, if you go to Patagonia with a guide (and I hope you will!), be sure to remain visible at all times! They are responsible for you...
