Monte Poincenot and Monte Fitz Roy are reflected on Laguna de Los Tres in Argentina's famed Patagonia wilderness region.
Patagonia is a region located at the southern end of South America, territory shared by Argentina and Chile, boasting some of the most dramatic landscapes on Earth. The region comprises the southern section of the Andes mountains to the southwest towards the Pacific ocean and from the east of the mountain range to the valleys it follows south through Colorado River towards Carmen de Patagones in the Atlantic Ocean. To the west, it includes the territory of Valdivia through Tierra del Fuego archipelago.
Santa Cruz’s most visited destination is Los Glaciares National Park and a number of glaciers of which the Perito Moreno Glacier is the most famous. Nearby El Calafate has an airport that connects the area with Buenos Aires and Trelew.
Some 200 kilometres north of El Calafate is the village of El Chaltén at the feet of the Cerro Torre and Mount Fitz Roy. Still not very developed, El Chaltén serves as a hub for various trekking routes including walks on the Viedma Glacier. -Wikipedia

I battled some rabidly hungry coastal mosquitoes and waded into this little stream to get the shot. Dropping my tripod down allowed me to position the rock nicely in the foreground. I used a Singh-Ray graduated neutral density to balance the overall exposure.

Three of my friends and I decided to make an early morning photo run up Mount Hood on a particularly cold November day. However Mount Hood decided to obscure herself in a thick layer of clouds, so I pointed my lens towards Mount Jefferson, another worthy subject well seen from the slopes of Mount Hood. Being flexible is quite often a necessity when pursuing scenic photography. I used a hard stop graduated neutral density filter to balance the foreground exposure with the peach sky around the peak. The thick blanket of fog in the valley helps set the scene off.
Mount Jefferson is a stratovolcano in the Cascade Volcanic Arc, part of the Cascade Range, and is the second highest mountain in Oregon. Situated in the far northeastern corner of Linn County on the Jefferson County line, about 105 miles (169 km) east of Corvallis, Mount Jefferson is in a rugged wilderness and is thus one of the hardest volcanoes to reach in the Cascades; though USFS Road 1044 does come within 4 miles (6.4 km) of the summit. The lower reaches of the mountain’s north side also extend into southeastern Marion County, although its summit does not. Jefferson’s craggy, deeply glacially scarred appearance is especially beautiful and photogenic, and the peak has frequently served as a backdrop for automobile and alcohol advertisements in the United States.
The Mount Jefferson Wilderness area covers 111,177 acres (449.92 km2). The area has over 150 lakes. The mountain’s namesake wilderness has 190 miles (310 km) of trails, including 40 miles (64 km) of the Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail. In addition to the trails, some of the most popular areas around Mount Jefferson Wilderness include Jefferson Park, Eight Lakes Basin, Marion Lake, Pamelia Lake, Jack Lake, Duffy Lake, Russell Lake, and Santiam Lake.
There are five glaciers on the slopes for Mount Jefferson. They include Whitewater, Waldo, Milk Creek, Russell, and Jefferson Park glaciers. Other geographic features include rock outcrops, steep talus slopes, conifer forests, and alpine meadows. -Wikipedia
