Night Colors of Patagonia

By: Stephane Guisard


Region: Americas

Site: Torres del Paine National Park - Chile

Date: February 2009

A nearly full night of Patagonia is captured in this long accumulated exposure, made of hundreds of continues shots. The resulted star brimming image shows the sky rotation (caused by the rotation of our planet). Note the diverse star colors visible with their trails. The famous "Cuernos" (horns) mountains and Peho lake in the World Heritage Torres del Paine National Park is the location of this image. The Cordillera del Paine is a small but spectacular mountain group in Chilean Patagonia with spectacular summits known as the Three Towers of Paine. They are gigantic granite monoliths shaped by the forces of glacial ice. See a time-lapse video made by continues shots used for this startrail image, displaying the starry sky in motion above this amazing Patagonian scenery. Stephane
