    The water looks so mysterious. I love the colors. The reddish brown makes the blue green pop!

    Fantastic image and great for a HDR… doesn\'t show any of the "unreal" feel that these photos can have when not done properly.

    It\'s funny because in March of \'05 I was at almost in the same spot and about 10 seconds after I took a photo a gust of wind — which I\'d estimate at least at 120 km/h, knocked flat on my @$$ and proceeded to pelt me with sand and gravel ;-) This is such a spectacular place with truly spectacular weather to go with the scenery. One second it can look like your photo and then a couple of minutes later it can look like this (it\'s not fog in the photo, it\'s lake water being blasted around by the wind):

The story behind "Torres del Paine, Chile"

I spent X-mas here, this shot is taken from the beach of one of the campsites in the Torres del Paine National park, Patagonia. Not crowded at all, I sat here alone for a few hours, the wind pounding on my face, but with a view like this you hardly notice..

This is actually a combined HDR/pano image. HDR means that I shot several images with different exposures, combining them in photoshop. As I did this for 3 different shots, which overlapped to create this image, the above is actually composed of 9 different shots!
As this process removes the tech info: taken with 24mm Tilt/Shift lens, 25 Dec 2005, aperture/shutterspeed not known anymore..
