Receding Storm over Lago Grey
South America

On the map it says "Fuertes Vientos" and I could not concur more - the wind really at gale force did nearly toppled my camera gear had I not held on it tightly during this particular shot - then a temporary reprieve as the sky suddenly brightened up with the receding storm - the setting sun cast an almost orange glow on everything it touched, and a rainbow started to take shape in the distance. The smaller lake perching near the mountain at a higher level is Laguna Los Patos and the much much larger one below is the unmistakable Lago Grey.

More About South America

South America makes up the southern half of the Americas and a large part of Latin America. It's home to the world's longest mountain range, biggest waterfall and largest river -- even these mammoths pale in comparison to the stunning variety of life forms thriving in the rainforest. To the northwest, off the coast of Ecuador, lie the Galapagos Islands, which are unique for hosting species not found anywhere else on earth. These were the subject of study for Charles Darwin in his theory of evolution, which he himself said will require proof in every single case. The main languages in South America are Spanish and Portugese, which basically tells you which European countries colonized the place. The South American wars of independence took place over two decades in the early 19th century, led by Simon Bolivar of Venezuela and Jose san Martin of Argentina. Following liberation from Portugal and Spain, South America took off into its own development, capitalizing on the rich deposits of oil, gold, copper, silver and tango musicians. Brazil is the largest country in South America and home to one of the world's best parties, Carnaval. Have you heard of samba music? How about bossa nova? Maybe dancing for three days straight? I can't say enough good things about South America.
