Sunrise in Patagonia by NB-Photo Sunrise in Patagonia by NB-Photo
Mount Fitz Roy near El Chaltén, Santa Cruz Province, Patagonia, Argentina. Although this mountain is not even 3,500 m above sea level, it is one of the most uniquely shaped ones.

The wind was blowing at about 40-50 miles an hour (you better get used to that if you want to travel here), and it was freezing. But it was worth it to get up at 5 AM. This was the last time we saw this mountain in all its glory.

Comment added on 5 April, 2015:

As of today, this picture has been downloaded 3,728 times, although it has "only" received 360 faves or so. What's wrong with this picture? When I performed a reverse image search on TinEye, to my dismay I found 21 results, suggesting that this image was used several times without my permission. I will investigate this further and take the steps necessary to prevent this from happening. I'm not paranoid about this, but art theft is not something that should be tolerated. For starters, I have disabled the free download option. Thanks to to all of you for your kind support.

Absolutely amazing. I love how the sun already shines her red on the mountain top while the rest of the landscape is still slightly dark. It makes the look of the photo rather intense in my opinion. Well done shot!

Sincerely

Thanks. What I don't understand is that this photo was downloaded 3,569 times but received only 179 favorites. Weird, isn't it?

donnamm Featured By Owner May 14, 2013
maybe that because people don't understand "favorite." I don't. What does that designate on DeviantArt?

What's not to understand about the term "favorite"? It's a photo or piece of art that you like a lot. And why would anyone clog their hard drives with a downloaded photo UNLESS they also like that photo, i.e. picked it as a favorite? SO, if the download count is a multiple of the favorite count, there is something wrong in my mind, assuming that deviantArt's counters work properly.
