The story behind "Sunset on Aconcagua, Argentina"

When the snowstorm at Confluencia camp suddenly stopped, we were treated to a great sunset, where the colours were changing every minute. I chose this one from a series of about 20 images, but any other would have been great as well, the light was just wonderful on the fresh snow.

One of the reasons I like to be in the mountains, you never know what you gonna get
