What stunning shots of this beautiful place again Jose, especially the first shot. I will admit it looks a bit cold for me. :) I would freeze to death being used to these warmer climates of ours.

The beauty of this is stunning! Absolutely beautiful pictures! I admire how much traveling you've done. Traveling adds so much more to the person, and also helps to keep you humble. :)

We have been to the Andes in Argentina several times, and Peru once, but not yet in Chile. It is definitely on our list. Great photos. Thank you for scanning them, something that we have not yet done with our too-long adherence to film
