Torres Del Paine National Park, Patagonia, Chile

 
 

Los Cuernos

After a very fulfilling five days long backpacking trip in Torres Del Paine National Park in Chile we decided to make our way around the park to see the mountains from a different angle and in a different light. The weather turned into a gloomy spectacle and the gusty Patagonian winds, reaching 100 km/h, were almost taking off us of the ground.

It was almost impossible to set the tripod in such conditions and I had somehow to manage the composition holding my large camera in my hands, battling the crazy winds at the same time.

Finally, when the wind calmed down for the fraction of a second, I managed to make just one shot before my camera was almost blown away off my hands.
