Lago Nahuel Huapi in Black & White

San Carlos de Bariloche is situated at the base of the eastern slopes of the Andes Mountains, on the shore of Lago Nahuel Huapi, in southern Argentina. Winter is winding down now, with spring arriving on September 21st, but it is still brisk and cold with daytime temperatures hovering around -5°C/26°F. The scenery is striking in color but also very dramatic in black & white (as pictured above). The Andes of South America are second only to the Himalayas of Asia when it comes to elevation and soaring peaks. Mountain climbers from around the world flock to these vertical challenges and pit themselves against the formidable mountains—unfortunately many are killed in the process.
