"Paine Grande, Torres del Paine" by Gerhard Aust .....
I took this picture during the five-day hike "W-Trek", which isn't very frequented by other photographers, because you have to carry all the camping gear, food, etc. Hence, it is a rather unknown spot, at least I did not find any other pictures during my preparation of the tour. This river is directly besides the Campamento Italiano and I realized during our search of a spot for the evening, that the Paine Grande mountain might be enlighted during sunrise.
And my hope became true! After we finished our breakfast I went to the river and on my way I realized the red color in the sky. It took just about five minutes and was gone as rapid as it arose. Probably nobody in the camp but me and a guide (which stood on the bridge over my head) took notice of this fantastic moment, and maybe some even wondered why I returned to our tent with a big grin in my face... - Gerhard Aust
