Fitzroy Night Sky

El Chalten, Argentina

Moonlight illuminates Mount Fitzroy from the summit of Cerro Madsen. We started climbing Cerro Madsen at nine p.m. arriving on the summit around one a.m. I made this star image quickly as high winds forced us to seek refuge slightly below the exposed summit. It was a long cold night up there waiting for sunrise, but the experience alone was worth it! Photo © copyright by Grant Ordelheide.
