Torres del paine - March 2016

I enjoyed this morning more than any other sunrise in my life. After walking almost 4 km and meeting with a puma lighted only with my flashlight i decided to stay and wait to see what nature had prepared for me. I was completely alone, not other photographer in more than 2km around... A perfect paradise.
I normally reach my location 20 minutes before and i have to do everything quite fast. This time, i got there almost 80 minutes before sunrise so i took the time to plan every single shot i wanted to take. I even took a previous shot to this one, almost 30 minutes before sunrise to master the composition before the perfect moment.
Almost 15 minutes after sunrise colors started to pop up for the naked eye, i slightly corrected the previous combo and waited for the lake to be completely calm. After sunrise, the wind starts to blow quite strongly so calm moments are scarce. I finally got one of those moments and clicked the shutter to capture this shot.
