18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
The road to Fitz Roy

Patagonia is a place of unpredictable weather and unmistakable beauty. While on a recent trip to Patagonia I wanted to photograph this majestic range at sunrise. There is really only one road into El Chalten. I knew the sun would rise behind me from this vantage point. Here is a stitched image of several shots to create one image of this incredible mountain range.
