This a photo of the southern chilean fjords near the Straits of Magellan, an incredible remote place with huge untouched sceneries. It reminded me of the "Iron Islands" from the series Game of Thrones.

Awesome - agree about the Albatross - it really accentuates the isolated locality.

I have never seen Game of Thrones but I can appreciate this wild, untouched landscape - and certainly agree that the albatross is the glue that holds this whole scene together! Well done Octavio!

Perfect placement of the albatross to make this an evocative scene.
