Torres del Paine National Park, Chile

Photograph by Adriano Neves, National Geographic Your Shot

In Torres del Paine National Park in Chile's Patagonia region, the jagged crown of Cuernos del Paine dominates the horizon and is reflected in the sparkling waters of Lake Nordenskjöld. According to local mythology, the granite-and-shale peaks of the Cuernos del Paine were made from the bodies of two mighty warriors who, along with their tribe, were killed in a massive flood caused by an evil serpent.
