Hello everyone! I’m back, after a long hiatus. I’ll do my best to keep new posts coming and I hope you’ll enjoy them! Also, I’m doing a three day takeover at @ right now, so if you’d like to see some more images from Patagonia please head over there for a look.
The Torres del Paine massif reflects in a small lake in the steppe on the eastern side of the park. The big mountain in the center is Paine Grande. On its right you can just make out the summits of the Towers themselves and on the left are the jagged peaks called Los Hornos, The Horns. There is a band of pale rock running through the Horns, which is the granite laccolith that intruded the hundred-million-year-old sediments here about eleven million years ago. Geology aside, Torres del Paine is a spectacularly beautiful place, particularly on a rare blue-sky day like this.
