Dawn at Laguna Torre.
Cerro Torre is lightened by the first sun.
We remained speechless for hours looking at this wonderful mountain...

Imponente paisaje Enrico del cerro Torre, considerado uno de los más difíciles de escalar en América.
Una imagen con gran sentido estético, con intensos colores, una bella simetría, excelente POV y foco y el bonus de una perfecta reflexión.
Saludos... Ricardo

Hi Enrico,

A beautiful landscape photo with a well-seen composition.The reflection on the water and the shadows surrounding the area are impressive.

Well done & TFS.

what a wonderful view you have caught here. Those colours are great and the symentry and refelction are spot on.

The photo is really stunning and the detail is great. I'm guessing that that is a glacier coming down to the waters edge at the far end of the lake?


Hola Enrico,
paisaje magnífico de alta montaña con este glaciar (heladero) que se zambulle en el lago.


Stunning! I love everything about this shot. Wow the colors really pop, the framing is spot on too.

Great job!

Hi Enrico,

Again a very nice landscape,very well composed with lovely colors,very well done keep them posting,



Hi Enrico, congratulations on such a awesome photo - its is truly humbling to see such incredible beauty in nature - how fortunate you were to be there and to capture this first class photo - TFS>

Hi Enrico!
Wonderful composition with this mountain lake! A great reflection in the water and lovely purple color of the sky! The light of the sun is quite warm and well captured! Good job, regards Florian

Hi Enrico,
Less snow then the last few photos but still as stunning as the rest. The riple in the water is really beautiful, giving of the perfect deformed reflection. Beautiful warm colors and the light. Great low POV and as always great control over the exposure.

Sooo beautiful, Enrico,

This is another beautiful image Enrico, though not quite as dramatic as some of your previous posts. I am a little disurbed by the magenta cast. It doesn't feel natural, even for early moring light. But I can see I am the only one that it bothers : /

Thanks for taking us to places few of us will ever see.
