Daily Photo – The Deep Blue Morning at Cerro Torre

I’d love to return to this place, but I’m afraid the weather would not be as clear and perfect.  Many locals told me there is a 90% chance that these mighty peaks would be covered with clouds, so I felt very lucky to have everything so perfect.  Surely, a return here would not be nearly as good…  but maybe… just maybe… a return would have clouds, but in an awesome dramatic way.

You probably also know I’m not a fan of plain blue skies.  But way up in the mountains, sometimes the sky on the opposite side of the sun is a deep atmospheric blue.  I see it from planes a lot when dawn breaks.  Maybe you have seen that color of blue too… and here it is again.

    One can not always get a good sky unless you hang around long enough, but the blue looks good in the pic as there is enough white snow as to the missing  white clouds. Looks good

    In my experience, it’s a rare to find clear blue skies in the mountains, but when they do it is that clear deep blue you captured.   More often they have dramatic or interesting cloud formations.  The colors are gorgeous!

    I really like this one without clouds. Deep blue sky. Love it!

    Hey, Trey. I watched an hour long Daniel Suarez talk last night, here… http://fora.tv/2008/08/08/Daniel_Suarez_Daemon_Bot-Mediated_Reality. Holy moly, I didn’t realize how many bots are currently integrated in our lives and their possibilities in the future. So after watching, I promptly bought Daemon and made it to Ch. 5. It’s truly riveting. And gaming… oh my gosh! I had no idea some bot somewhere could be putting me in a certain category by the way I play multiplayer games online. Since this internet is broken and overrun with bots, I think the internet 2.0 would be something worthwhile. Where do I sign up? Anyway thanks for suggesting and supporting thought provoking artists. If you do get Daniel in a hangout, I’d love to ask him a couple of questions.

    Very beautiful image indeed, but: the mountain on the picture is not the Cerro Torre, it’s the Cerro Fitz Roy (the highest). The second highest is Aguja Pointcenot, the third highest is Aguja Saint Exupery.

    Excellent shot and alpenglow, Trey!  I would love to go here some day!

    I so want to be in this image. I could sit there for hours, if I didn’t think I would freeze to death in the meantime. Great shot.

    This shot is awesome.  Patagonia right??  After my year trekking across Eur, Mid East, and Asia, the trek from Alaska to Patagonia is on my list!!  Such a beautiful image.  I am also a huge fan of clouds, but there is something to be said about an image like this:  Glorious golden peaks, deep transitioning blue sky, and that growing shadow… Stunning.  I think this is one of your best images Trey.
