Once in a lifetime?
Posted By: gfonso, 08-04-2010, 02:37 PM

It was cold and windy as I was climbing Gardner Pass, the highest point in the Torres del Paine circuit. I paused for a breath, turned around, and saw this light beam falling right on Laguna Perros, the glacial lagoon where I had camped the night before.

It was all so hurried and unexpected I had to shoot quickly before the beam disappeared. I could not believe my luck!

I'm not sure if the picture is appealing, but that moment surely made my day.

I can only envy right now. I think if I was in your place I would have been too stunned to even take a picture.
Well done!

Thank you Pablom! Actually my biggest problem were my numb fingers from the cold wind that was blowing from the pass
