Twists and Turns by GroovyGeek Twists and Turns by GroovyGeek
Fitz Roy and Cerro Torre in the background of Rio de las Vueltas (literal translation is "river of the turns")
...
As all good light on this particular trip the morning started with a cloud-covered mountain around 30 mins before sunrise. We were on the way from El Chalten to Torres del Paine when the light started to turn. We literally ran out of the bus to this spot to catch the light. Fortunately we had scouted the location a few days earlier, and even better the 100 km/h winds were gone.

I love the color in this. The composition is what I would consider "very good," but I can't help but wish you'd have been two steps back, as to allow the bush in the foreground to exist in a "non-truncated" way. Still, awesome.

Did you ever end up making it back to Patagonia this year? I had grand plans, but everything fell apart, as you likely guessed.

Agree 100%. Unfortunately when I took this there were 100+ km/hr winds blowing so you were holding on for dear life. Did you end up going to Patagonia?

Should have read your message before asking about Patagonia... I did not make it either, a few expenses piled up and I am also running short on vacation time due to family commitments. Plus my wife decided she wanted to go some place sunny for her birthday. I do plan on going back next year.

I always avoid the use of the saturation slider. Too many people feel the need to jack up the colors to make an impression. Nature is plenty beautiful on its own without any help from Photoshop.
