Dawn in the Andes

Category: Outdoor Scenes


Photo and caption by Martin Gildemeister

This photo was taken during an expedition to Cerro Marmolejo (6108 m), located in the central Andes on the border between Chile and Argentina. It was shooted during the sunrise of the summit attack, after 4 hours of climbing in the dark. You can see the mountains of the Andes with its lights and shadows from the glacier.

Location: Cerro Marmolejo, The Andes, Chile
