17:50pm y los atardeceres de invierno son impredecibles y muy diferentes. Mientras corría para llegar a fotografiar la cordillera (sabía que algo mágico ocurriría) a mi costado derecho Santiago comenzaba a tomar tonos muy llamativos gracias a las nubes altas mezclado con la bruma-neblina a baja altura, de hecho pueden ver que no cubría el Cerro San Cristobal ni la Torre Costanera. En el último recorte se ven alguna de las "casitas" de Lo Curro, viéndola de cerca hasta encontré un helipuerto 🚁 👉 🔥 •• Recuerda: si te interesa la impresión de una de las fotos que ves acá, mándame un mail o DM // DM for prints, contact in bio ••——————————————————————————————————— Panorámica vertical de 3 imágenes con la Nikon D7500 y el Nikkor 70-300mm 〉70mm 〉ƒ/8 〉1/4" 〉ISO 100 #TorreCostanera #ParqueMetropolitano . . . . . . #santiagoadicto #neverstopexploring #StreetMobs #urbanromantix #hallazgosemanal #citykillerz #CreativeOptic #ig_color #theimaged #createcommune #fantastic_shotzs #meistershots #chile_bloggers #lensbible #illgramers #visualambassadors #depthobsessed #trappingtones #illgramers #depthsofearth #folkscenery #milliondollarvisuals #instachile_ #igerschile #visitchile #highlightscl #passionpassport #master_gallery
