“Pic of the Week”. March 14, 2014: Patagonian sunset, El Calafate, Argentina

2014 011 Mar 14e Sunset in El Calafante

One of the most amazing sunsets I’ve ever seen was during our first night in Patagonia.  We were staying in the small town of El Calafate in Argentina, walking back to our hotel after dinner.  The clouds were dramatic and I hoped the setting sun would cooperate with some nice light….which it certainly did!

Besides the brilliant colors, what I found most amazing was the spiral shape of the clouds that for all purposes looked like flying saucers.  It was almost surreal and certainly a nice introduction to some of the beauty we were to see in Patagonia.
