This is my favorite sphere to date, the image of Fitz Roy Mount at moon rising.I planned to do this sphere for months and I calculated the best moon phase for do this.This Is one of the hardest tracks in  Argentine Patagonia.It has 12 km of extension and a vertical climb of 750 meters lasting 6 hours of trekking.I was subjected to temperatures of -18°C and winds up to 70 km/h!The Milky Way is located in zenith and made ​​a connection with the moon and the Fitz Roy Mount.I arrived a little late because of the large amount of snow so I could not pick a better place without footprints, necessary to improve the nadir, so the result is 90% of what I planned.The next morning I found the perfect place with no footprints, but the absence of clouds did not leave the magical light as I would is the most beautiful view I've ever seen and I'll never forget this moment.
