Starry night at Bolsón plateau

This image enshrines the breathtaking impression of a starry night in the Andes far from civilization under the black southern sky. The civilization deprived us of the sensation of being a part of the universe. The image was taken in Bolsón in Valle Indios in NP Radal Siete Tazas (Chile) during the two-member (me and my wife Zuzana) mountaineering expedition.
