Chile, 2016

34. View over the Ancud area

As we leave the Ancud area, we look back from a hill to take in the view. Most of the water in the photo was not there before the 1960 earthquake (magnitude 9.5 - the strongest ever recorded) and tsunami. Much of the farming land in this area collapsed and was inundated by the sea, forming the large estuary seen in this photo.
