With this sunset I complete my South America series, I hope you enjoyed the ride.
More non nature shots of this trip you find on my TrekLens account.

This picture was taken out of the aircraft window when flying over the Andes on our return.

Hi Sky.
Beautiful sunset,really.I like this line of horizon and amazingly clear tones on sky.Very nice you caught this moment.Very symbolic end this your pretty series from South America.Well done,TFS.
Best greetings Milos.

Hello Sky,
Sunrise or sunset often get some unexpected effects when photographed from aircrafts!
Here I'd say the moment is right, and I notice the beamlike effect...
Great colours and well framed!
Pablo -

An apt conclusion to your trip to South America, Sky.
Whether it is sunset or a sunrise, it is a well composed image through aircraft window.
Those shafts of light look like berms on either side of the highway to heaven.
TFS and best regards.

wow, its almost like a lazer show...awesome sunset! Love the color of the sky and the dark silhoetted mountains..the sun rays are amazing though...beauuuutiful! TFS

Hello Sky,
What a goregous end to a very beautiful series of captures that I thoroughly enjoyed, thanks Sky.

Hi, Sky, good composition, excellent soft colours that blends in very well, nice and simple, almost monochrome in its colour.

TFS, Anders.

Hi Sky

lovely sunset, I love that beam of light. wonderful colours. Lovely end shot



Hi Sky,
A beautiful landscape/sunset from an amazing country. A simple uncluttered composition that works very well here. Nice shot!

Amazing that you took this in the sky, Sky! ;)

I didn't realize that till I reread the note. You must have felt a pang when the trip was over! Nice shot to conclude with though... I am a sucker for sunsets! Very nice mood here and a great moment just as the sun touches the Sierras...

Hi Sky ,
very nice image.
lovely colours.
excellent work
thanks for sharing

Hi Sky,
Great composition here. I love the rays that take you to the sun. It's like a runway of some sort!
Great contrasts!

Hi Sky,
Super beautiful sunset, I love the beams of light shooting out at the viewer. Great exposure. :)

Hi Sky. Very good composition of this Argentina sunset. The colours are wonderful. I suggest it could be cropped at the base to remove some of the dark area perhaps, it would lower the horizon away from half way? TFS. Murray.

HY Sky,
I have been following your trip to the southern part of South America and have wanted to tell you at the end of your trip, what a wounderful interpretation of the southern part through your pictures have yoou made. And what a final dramatic farewell image this sunset saying goodby to a such rich experience.
my congratulation

Hallo Sky,
sehr stimmungsvolles Foto zum krönenden Abschluss Deiner Reise.
Danke für die Vielfalt der Eindrücke, die Du mit uns hier geteilt hast! Mit Dank und besten Grüßen,

Hi Sky,
What a wonderful photo. The emptyness of the composition with the sun just casting its last rays of the country side is very beautiful. Normally it is best to use the golden mean with such a photo, but I feel that in this case the perfect centered composition does work.

Bonita puesta de sol Sky,
Un colorido precioso el de ese sol en el justo momento que se esconde. Quizás la toma desde el punto de vista de la composición esté excesivamente centrado. Pera las reglas son para saltarlas cuando uno quiera, no?.
Un saludo
