Dawn at Laguna de Los Tres, Los Glacieres, Patagonia, Argentina
...
The hike to get there does not seem like much, 1200 ft elevation, 2 hrs from Camp Poincenot (which itself is 10 miles or so outside of Chalten). Soon after you get going you are hit by an "oh sh*t" moment, as in "oh sh*t, this is going to be more difficult than expected". It is a constant and steep climb that is challenging for those of us in less than peak shape. Luckily we climbed it in total darkness so you could not see what is ahead.
...
The potential of the location is great, unfortunately for us neither Fitz Roy nor Poincenot made an appearance for the few hours we were up there. I am still amazed how calm it was, given the constant winds that seem to sweep every square inch of Patagonia in the summer.

This is how you know that either the image is real or that I have faked it in Photoshop and I kind of know what I am doing :). I was shocked to see a tutorial on faking reflections in the latest issue of Pop Photo. I am a new subscriber, but if this is the crap they publish I may just cancel my sub.
