Boats, having spent a lot of years at sea, has no doubt seen many sunsets on the Pacific Ocean that rival and surpass this one, but the solitary freighter, southbound perhaps for the Straits of Magellan off the coast of Chile at about the 45th parallel south, made me think that this was an image that Boats might appreciate. I don't know if you've ever gotten down there Boats or have sailed in the Straits of Magellan or not but this one's for you.

If anyone needs the techno stuff, it was shot at iso 640, 1/200th of a sec at 200 mm, f/2.8.

Boats, I was looking at the horizon at sunrise and sunset every chance I got but unfortunately I didn't get to see a green flash. We were well south of -20 the entire trip. I'll keep on looking :!: One of these days, I'll get to see it and maybe photograph it. I did get a nice sun pillar at dawn north of Isla de los Estados before we entered Estrecha de la Maire. I'll have to get that downsized and posted along with some of the dawn shots looking toward Isla de los Estados.

Glad you liked that, Leah.

Boats, here's another one for you, this time at sunrise on the Argentine side of the continent. We were headed south at the time in Estrecho de le Maire, the strait that separates the tip of Tierra del Fuego from Isla de los Estados, when this was shot. The rugged mountain backbone of the island was sticking up above the clouds silhouetted against the rising sun. The wider angle shot was taken within a minute or two of the first one.
