Photographing Torres del Paine
Everyone wants to photograph Patagonia’s iconic Torres del Paine. Whether you are going for a professional photo or just a nice memory of your trip, if you want to do this well, you must be in the right place at the right time. Follow this advice to find the best angle from which to photograph this natural monument.
This enormous volcano, sacred to indigenous people, appears on the desert horizon and immediately captivates the attention of those who visit San Pedro de Atacama. It is dormant, but does not appear so. Rising above the high plains, it is part of the Andes Mountain Range and its crater contains the fifth largest lagoon in the world.
The native ingredients of the Atacama Desert – the driest desert in the world – have been utilized for centuries by the local people. Used in different preparations, herbs like rica-rica, pingo-pingo, and copa-copa, provide a multitude of health and wellness benefits. All of these herbs and plants grow in the desert at over 2,200 meters above sea level.
