The golden hour

Many people say that we cannot capture some moments by pictures. In fact, some moments are somewhat magic. More than that, they are absolutely particular experiences. When the first golden sun light broken the blue, cold-like atmosphere of Cerro Fitz Roy, in Patagônia, I felt as if I was not there. Such a surreal, pristine, wild landscape, left me absolutely hypnotized for long minutes. Astonished, and asking myself about the huge origins of that unique landscape, and about my own existence in the planet, I could remember about my motivation in searching places like that: the wish to get closer to the wild nature.
