Found this description http://bit.ly/mZHljS and the NASA EO link http://1.usa.gov/pu6RCK. Another view of it: http://1.usa.gov/oaRChV
@Smith5se Here @pamkstewart is definitely superior to NASA. Guess this one would have been identified as „Northern Patagonian ice field“.
@Smith5se @pamkstewart Was on the track of that peak already. Due to glacier features and one of the sequence images shows San Rafael laguna to its west. So much rotating required.
@Smith5se @pamkstewart Was too tired last night. It’s not Lautaro as you proposed with the coords. A fresh approach after a nap always is helpful …
@pamKstewart well we'll just leave this one for NASA to figure out & I'll put your data in the map!
@PC0101 if you get the chance can you double check that this is indeed Cerro San Valentin at -46.592980° -73.355862°? TNX
@PamkStewart So it's not Lautaro Volcano?
The Cerro San Valentin is the peak at the center top of the photo (or center right if you rotate into proper orientation). It has a distinctive double peak.
That was not easy to find. Getting the time so I could orient it with the sun in the proper direction helped and then using the GM terrain function and then zooming in so I could get topo lines was very helpful.
I think this is further north, the Cerro San Valentin. The distinctive glacier at center top begins at -46.594319,-73.360519. Rotate 90 right for proper orientation. It's very hard to see in GE or Bing, so I went to terrain in GM.
Is it this? -49.019367, -73.506977
Oh dear @PC0101 I know you know the coordinates of this one too... LOL
@djsheptx Obvious; really cool shadows. Really tough for the lack of images for detailed comparisons.
Tough to find, beautiful picture. Easy to see why you photographed it.
I'm pretty sure this one is near the Lautaro Volcan in the Chilean Andes of Patagonia. I really liked taking shots late in the orbital day with the cool shadows. Toughie, huh?!?
@djsheptx 48.9 S, 79.3 W over the Pacific Ocean. No help here with this shot into Patagonia.
@PC0101 I give up...I can't find the location. :( Do you know the coordinates?
Beautiful photo!!! ^__^
For those who want to guess: POTD is the same area as this: http://twitpic.com/4kdwz6 Tricky to match perfectly!
@djsheptx Nothing of the snow angels visible. Guess he’s building castles in the air. ;-)
