Embalse El Yeso is a reservoir located in the Andes, in the Santiago Metropolitan Region, Chile. It is formed by the damming of Yeso River, part of Maipo River basin. The reservoir has a capacity of 250,000,000 m.[3]

El Yeso reservoir, along with the nearby Laguna Negra, are a major source of drinking water for Santiago.

Its turquoise waters are suitable for fishing and windsurfing.

The picture corresponds to a montain to the south of th reservoir. It was taken around 6:00 pm. during sunset.

I hope you all like it, and thanks for your comments.

Hi Carlos , this is a very nice mountain photo , straight forward composition , really nice colors and the foreground shadow works great , only thing I think does not work well here , and it is a very small thing :-) , is the black frame ,I think that foreground shadow dissolves into the frame and acts as a bit of a distraction.I did a small workshop and hope that it is to your liking.

Hello Carlos,
Magnificent light on this Chilian mountains. Wonderful contrast between front- and background. Art's workshop adding a white border is a good idea. It lightens a little bit the picture.
best regards
