Moon Over the Towers

The moon setting behind the Three Towers in Torres del Paine. 

The Three Towers absolutely dominate the landscape in Torres del Paine and were visible just above my hotel,  if you climbed to the top of one of the nearby view obstructing smaller hills. I started hiking a couple of hours before sunrise hoping to catch the sun reflecting off the towers but I noticed the full moon setting just behind the towers so I needed to get to a vantage point before the moon disappeared. Unfortunately I lost the trail in the dark and had to frantically bushwhack up the foothills till I found a decent spot.  Luckily, the moon was setting  between two of the towers just as I set up my tripod.
