[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
After my retirement, I could finally make my dream trip to Patagonia. This is the Fitz Roy mountain (3405 m. asl), so named in 1877 by argentine explorer Francisco Moreno, in honor of the Royal Navy captain Patrick Fits Roy, who spent many years exploring and studying the Patagonia.
I did this photo soon after the dawn, to have the mountain illuminated by the rising sun and I was surprised to see a beautiful full moon that was setting. The village visible below is El Chalten, from which all mountain excursions start.
The Fitz Roy is located on the border Argentina-Chile

Bravo et amitié

Ciao Roberto,

J'aime beaucoup cette composition. J'aime l'effet de contraste entre le bas de l'image dans la vallée très sombre et cette lumière spectaculaire sur la montagne enneigée.



Hello Roberto,
What an amazing scenery !
The sharp peaks are so beautiful but the inclusion of the village of El Chalten makes them look much more impressive.
The full moon and the large yellow cloud provide a wonderful upper part of the picture.
Best regards, Paul

Ciao Roberto, favoloso panorama di montagna, fantastica luce, grande spettacolo, bravo, buon week end, ciao Silvio

Hi Roberto

A memorable photo, of course. Very nice picture and compositiom. Great moment. Very well done!!

Ciao Roberto
Wonderful mountain scene indeed. the range is impressive and the little village, dwarfed by the huge mountain, gives a good sense of scale here.
have a great time

Ciao Roberto

Very good sharpness and excellent backlight and shadow detail. The jagged rocky peaky peaks add a strong graphic element against the lighter toned sky. The orange sunset tints provide a fantastic warm cold color contrast against the blue parts of the sky. Tfs!
