[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Chile contains a large number of volcanoes but they are not particularly active.
This is due to the shallow subduction of the tectonic plates which cuts off magma supply to the surface.

Volcán Osorno is a 2,652 m (8,701 feet) tall conical volcano lying between the provinces of Osorno and Llanquihue, in Los Lagos Region of Chile. This is one of the most active volcanoes of the southern Chilean Andes. It stands on the southeastern shore of Lake Llanquihue, known worldwide as a symbol of the local landscape. The volcano also towers over Todos los Santos Lake.

This mountain has an extremely similar appearance to Mount Fuji.

Osorno is one of the most active volcanoes in southern Chile.
It has produced lava flows that have entered both Llanquihué and Todos los Santos lakes.
The most recent erruption of the Osorno
1869, 1855, 1851, 1837, 1834-35, 1790-91, 1765, 1719

Hello Sky.
Beautiful scene captured with excellent color and details, what a marvrlous landscape, thanks for sharing.

Hello Sky,
I have been looking for a good wide angle lens and this picture demonstrates the use of Nikon 17-70mm to my great advantage. Thanks.
Did you use a polarizer filter with it, BTW?
It is a beautiful landscape, though the white, as far as I can judge, has gone a wee bit over the limit, especially on the clouds and the reflection of sun on the water surface. However, that is an insignificant nit; the overall outlook is truly magnificent.
Looks like you had a great trip to South America.

Hello Sky,
An attractive landscape and an impressive volcano!
Good shape of the cone, and the snow covered summit is quite exotic...
A well composed image with strong foreground interest, and the shimmering reflection in the lake adds to the beauty of the place!

Hi Sky
A beautiful and vast landscape you captured here. I love all the different tones of blue in the sky, mountain and water. The sky is just beautiful with the wispy white clouds. Nicely composed and good notes.

Hi Sky,Awesome,
I would love to wake up to a view like that evey day! Well composed and framed shot. It does look alot like Mt. Fuji. Love the clouds in the sky. They add so much to the overall scene.

Hola Sky,
Bella vista, magnífico panorama y Pov.
detalles excelentes, colores maravillosos,
agradables tonos,

Hello Sky!
You were right, this landcape is a little similar to Arctic ones (except the trees which on Spitsbergen are a few hundred time smaller ;>).
I like this composition a lot, but especially nice for me in the part showing clouds and the top of moutain.
On the other hand the first plan is a little to dark for me.
Best greetings,

Hi Sky

Finally back and with some time for writing something :)
A splendid capture from what seems to have been a lovely cruise!
I really like the tones of this image and also those interesting shapes of the clouds - they give the impression of a very wide view.
The composition is very eye-pleasing with that impressive peak on the left which is superbly covered by snow but only in the higher part, drawing attention to that segment.
Also great are the exposure and the presentation.

Bravo and TFS

Wow - schau Dir diese Wolkenstimmung an!!!
Hi Sky, das muß ja grandios gewesen sein, welch tolle Landschaft - ich wäre gerne mit Dir gefahren.
Vielen Dank für diesen Augenschmauss

For all that the landscape is the intended subject, Sky, my eye is drawn to the remarkable skyscape! Fabulous details and colours and cloud formations just a little different from up here (or am I dreaming?)

Hallo Sky,
eine Märchenlandschaft von zauberhafter Klarheit, großer Tiefe, und "Eleganz" der Formen. Die Landschaft im Wolkenschatten lässt Wolken, Schnee und Wasserspiegelungen besoders wirkunsgvoll aufleuchten.
Mit Dank und besten Grüßen,
