Six-Years Ago (10-January-2011) — Chile

Gone to See Patagonia 2010/2011. Photography Workshop with Thom Hogan. Day 15: Torres del Paine National Park, Hosteria Lago Grey, Chile.

Prior to departing Hosteria Lago Grey, we were rewarded with several rainbows. The first one was at dawn, with only the red and orange colors. Later on after the sun rose a bit further there was a full rainbow over Lago Grey and the glacier.
