Glacier Torre Sunset

Glacier Torre Sunset

I believe that not many photographers have taken photos from this location that is quite close to the Cerro Torre peaks, simply because getting there is not a simple hike.

To me, walking on Glacier Torre was also challenging, because my ice axe, which was mainly for snow climb, was no longer in function - the icy surface was just as hard as rocks, plus there were many crevasses. By moving very carefully, I managed to get this composition when the sun was quickly setting down behind the mountains.
