It requires an exceptionally heavy rainfall to capture this cascade at its best. I would hazard an educated guess that this only happens for about ten days a year.  Whenever the river flow was high I’d head out and try to shoot here. Having found the cascade on the 25th of May, and because this date is a national holiday in Argentina, I decided to use this title.  In order to capture the moon burst with my Nikon 14-24mm lens, I had to shoot the moon burst at f18.  I fired off several frames as the moon set behind Loma de las Pizarras; later I’d be able to choose the best moon burst to blend into the image. Once the moon set, I quickly re-adjusted my aperture to f4 in order to shoot the foreground. One would imagine as the moon set behind the mountain the foreground would be very dark. However, there was still plenty of ambient light for the perfect exposure.

These are the results from three solid years shooting in El Chalten:
