Lake - Torres del Paine

By the_lane
One of the many lakes in the Torres Del Paine Park in Chile.

15,000 Hecters of the park was destroyed by Fire a week before we arrived. Will take a few years to find out what effect it has on the local wildlife.

Strong colors give the overall image a surreal look. Did you manipulate the shot?

Slight level adjustment in PS but, colours were as seen.

The Lake is soo blue because it is glacier melt water.

Just around the corner is the 'grey glacier' and, the melt water flows into this lake.

Great shot! I love the cotrasting colours of the vegetation and water plus the dead tree in the forground adds extra interest. Again, I'm so envious of you having made it this far south!!! Did it cost much to travel around and stay within the National Park cos that's one of the factors that stopped us from going there? Did you trek any of the 'W'?

Hi Pip,

Yes, it was expensive in Torres Del Paine. Hotels and food were double that of atacama. The park is approx 6 hours drive from the nearest airport!!

There are lots of cheap Rufugios (hostels) and camping sites....but I prefer a nice hotel myself!!!

We did a few days trecking in the park, unfortunatly, the day we went to the towers it was cloudy and we could not see them! After 6 hours climbing, that was anoying!
