This is one of the most beautiful mountains in the hole Souht Andes chain. It is located in the argentinian province of Santa Cruz near the town of the same name "El Chalten", the youngest town in the whole argentinan territory.

Wow, amazing shot. The clouds are incredible. It's a beautiful view. The only nit is the noise in the sky and that the clounds on the RHS are a little bit overexposed. Well done.

Nice landscape! great cloud formations, with nice detail and color. Well Done.

I like it, it's a very nice shot, you can feel the coming storm when looking at the light falling on the landscape. Near subject is sharp and contrasty from the direct sunrays, far away montains are soft because the light is diffused by the coming clouds. The only thing I'm not sure is the lens used. The 18-70 DX-IF is designed for small digital sensor and doesn't cover the full frame of the N-50, you must have used an other lens, unless you croped your image. Thanks for sharing.

Hola Alejandro esta foto es mas linda, los colores del cielito y las nubes hacen de sus foto un paisaje muy bien, in another word I just loved it, it has force, caracter and a super presentation.

Oh wow, what power in the sky!!!

Incredible clouds - glad you got it so well frammed on film

All I can say is WOW. Don't they call these types of clouds Anticular??? I love cloud formations as well. I live in southern Alberta and get to enjoy our Chinook Arches frequently. Thanks for shareing, Janice

Wonderful shot... The clouds are approaching quickly... Chalten is covered with ice...
You can feel the storm through this picture.

Fabulous! Well done, a round of aplause for this one! Very intering sky and clouds above. I will certainly add this one to my favorites and is well deserved, and would make a fine background for my desktop! The Andes are so beautiful! I never been outside North America, but I even dreamed about them, and they are so breathe taking and huge. Lucky you! Cheers Flow.
