Six-Years Ago (02-January-2011) — Argentina

Gone to See Patagonia 2010/2011. Photography Workshop with Thom Hogan. Day 7: Hosteria El Pilar.

Silhouette of Mount Fitzroy at dusk from Hosteria El Pilar in El Chalten. We had just finished the main dinner course and our hosts were bringing out the dessert. We saw this developing out the window, and all of us ran outside to take some pictures. I only had my point and shoot camera in my pocket and was not going to take the time to go back to my room not knowing how long the colorful display of clouds would last. “The best camera is the one with you”. I like the version that +Thomas Paris took and he made some beautiful prints. Image taken with a Leica D-Lux 5 camera (ISO 80, 19.2 mm, f/5.6, 1/100 sec).
