Photographer's Note

After my retirement, I could finally make my dream trip to Patagonia. This is the Fitz Roy mountain (3405 m. asl), so named in 1877 by argentine explorer Francisco Moreno, in honor of the Royal Navy captain Patrick Fits Roy, who spent many years exploring and studying the Patagonia.
I did this photo soon after the dawn, to have the mountain illuminated by the rising sun and I was surprised to see a beautiful full moon that was setting. The village visible below is El Chalten, from which all mountain excursions start.
The Fitz Roy is located on the border Argentina-Chile
