While participating in a photo tour in Patagonia, I was able to photograph the Cuernos peaks from several different positions and times during the five days that we were in the Torres del Paine National Park in Chile.
On this particular afternoon the catabatic winds were howling (which is pretty often the case in April), the water on Lake Pehoe was choppy and the lenticular clouds were moving very quickly over the peaks. Most of the time that we were shooting these majestic mountains, we had done so at dawn, with the sun behind us illuminating the peaks with reds and oranges as they reflected off the clouds. An afternoon picture with the sun in front of us made this case a challenge for me, so I decided to try some long exposures with stacked ND filters.
The resulting picture, an ephemeral image of the towering clouds, captures my sense of the grandeur of the view. Although the peaks are about 14,000+ feet tall, the massive clouds make them appear quite small by comparison.
