When you travel to places like Patagonia, you have a good chance of being skunked out by weather. However as a photographer, it is that potential for epic/dynamic skies that pull us in to these kind of locations. This photo looks down the valley toward the town of El Chaltan. Behind me was Cerro Torre, which I had hiked 10k to see. However as I waited for nice light to reach the peak, I turned around and saw the sky of fire behind me. It is always important to continue to look around you when photographing any particular subject.
Why did I use ISO 640? Mostly because of human error. I was photographing something just before this shot that required higher ISO and sadly forgot to change it back to ISO 100. You live...you learn :)
