Aconcagua Iridescence ~ At 6960m high, Aconcagua is the highest peak of the Andes. Radek Grochowski shot these images on 18th February ‘12 from Plaza de Mulas at 4400m looking towards the summit region. “The wind was heavy and the summit was surrounded by a bizarre veil of clouds which were changing their shape rapidly. Bright iridescence was present most of the time. What's on the photos is probably the most vivid and beautiful iridescence I have ever seen.
