Lago Grey & Icebergs

This was shot on a very dreary day. We'd had a lot of bad weather for the week in Torres del Paine, but every cloud has a silver lining, and in this instance, the inclemental weather was adding drama and some fleeting moments of very nice light. _mg_4563.jpg

Its almost back lit, as the sun is coming in from the left, but obscured by all the low cloud over Glacier Grey (which you can see in the distance). The mountains are part of the Torres massif, and I think this is part of Paine Grande. We were walking along the beach on our way to taking some shots of the bergs and the weather just seemed to do a few drastic changes in the space of about 15 minutes. Calm and serene and then by the end of it the wind had kicked up and the lago was filled with big waves. It was hard to stand up, let alone use the tripod.
