Details

Location: Nameless summit (1879 m)      by: Pedrotti Alberto
Area: Argentina      Date: 23-02-2014
El Chaltén was in origin name of the mountain now called Fitz Roy. Same as Chomolungma and Everest. The Ur-name, which now moved down to the nearby village, means "the smoking mountain", where the smoke, far from having volcanic connections, is bound with the floating clouds often coming from the Hielo Sur and playing around with the seven summits of the mountain, like here.

A nice subtitle for the picture could also be "Cana of Patagonia", after a recent comment by Alvise...

Sehr stark in der Lichtsetzung. Präzise in der Schärfe. Für mich das bislang beste deiner Patagonien-Reise.
