This shot was an after thought. My original plan was to do a timelapse of the Milky Way rising over the twin volcanoes Parinacota and Pomerape, reflected in a small glacial lake.

  • Camera: Canon 5DmkII
  • Focal length: 24mm
  • Aperture: f/2.5
  • Shutter speed: 20 seconds
  • ISO: 3200
  • Date: March 2011

To get to that spot, however, required a hike of around 5 km at 4200m. I set off mid afternoon, found the spot, setup by late afternoon and got back to the car in deep twilight…hiking is hard at high altitude! Originally I had hoped to setup the second camera at another spot with a different view of the volcanoes, but that wasn’t going to happen now that it was dark. So instead, I found this spot within 50m of the car. Funny, I actually like it – or rather the extended timelapse – more than the first.
