15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Roaring Monster

Torres del Paine National Park in Chile is full of mountains covered with glaciers. This one is visible after reaching a viewpoint, a few hours after climbing through the forest. The sound of the crushing ice resembled an angered monster living inside the mountain. It could be heard long before we could see the peaks of the mountain.
