PATAGONIA - by Full Moonlight

Moonlit mountains over El Chalten, Argentina!
The full moon was closer to earth Saturday night than it's been in 19 years.
The weather in Patagonia is notoriously foul, but the sky cleared all night upon our arrival.

I can't describe the gratitude within me to have witnessed this event, in this location, under these conditions.
I am a blessed man.

As the mountain was fully revealed around 1am, a car passed by on the main road in town. The driver's headlights painted the weathered tree in my foreground with just the right amount of light.

Can we say, "GIFT!"
