13th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Sunrise in Torres del Paine National Park

This photo was taken in 2014 when I spent 6 days hiking the W circuit in The Torres del Paine National Park (Patagonia, Chile). On the last night we hiked half way up the mountain, camped in the snow and then woke up at 4am to hike to the mountain ridge in time for sunrise. This photo was taken just as the sun was coming up over the mountain ridge - one of the most spectacular views I have seen.
