Rough weather is waiting...

Rough weather is waiting around the corner. These and other weird looking clouds were racing over the sky the whole day. Forming, disappearing, re-forming and changing at a high pace.

Late the following night a violent blizzard arrived.

Photo shot from in between El Fraile and El Muerto, on the way to Ojos del Salado.

Re: Wooooooooooow...

That days I was walking fast. I was more than a bit concerned with the weather. Those cloud formations were really ominous and it was clear a big old mother of a storm was approaching. It hit and the next day climbing (Ojos del Salado) was one of the most intense of my life.

Weather with you...

You seem to have a neck for photographing strange cloud patterns. Or do they follow you?

Re: Weather with you...

That day I encountered some of the strangest I've ever seen and they changed so fast all the time.

They follow me I think.


Here's another strange formation.

That one cloud looks like an upside-down mountain. Instead of hiking fast that day, I think I would have been on my knees praying for forgiveness.

Re: WOW!!!


Yes, the cloud formations were scary.

Combined with the violent ice cold wind squalls it created a doomsday atmosphere.

Thanks Alex.

I was too and it was pretty clear what was coming up and I got in a hurry to reach a good place to camp for the day.
