Dramatic Lenticular Clouds Welcoming Visitors at Chile's Torres Del Paine National Park

Torres del Paine National Park, Chile, a remote place on earth, is known for its spectacular lenticular clouds in addition to vast glaciers, lakes, rivers, mountains, and wildlife. This photo was taken while I was hiking there. Some dramatic lenticular clouds were circling in the sky of Grey Lake and snow-capped mountains. They seemed to give me a welcome dance. Melting blue glacier ices were floating in the clear lake. It was heaven on earth!
