Photographer's Note

Puerto Natales is a city most will have to stay when visiting Torres del Paine National Park in Patagonia. It is a nice enough town to walk around. I don’t really know what the building is, what I was interested at the time what the clouds and the sunset mood. The mountains you see in the distance are part of the national park.

Accuracy of the information below is not guarantee, something I gather through different sources:
Puerto Natales is a city in Chilean Patagonia. Puerto Natales is the capital of both the commune of Natales and the province of Última Esperanza, (Spanish for "Last Hope"), one of the four provinces that make up the Magallanes and Antartica Chilena Region in the southernmost part of Chile. The city is located 247 km (153 mi) northwest of Punta Arenas and is the final passenger port of call for the Navimag ferry sailing from Puerto Montt into the Señoret Channel as well as the primary transit point for travelers to Torres del Paine National Park, Chile.

The city was settled by European immigrants: The largest groups are Germans; British such as the English, Welsh and Scots; Croats; Greeks; Italians and Spaniards. Later settlement by Chilean people, with a substantial number coming from the Island of Chiloé, all attracted by the sheep-raising industry.

Nowadays, one of the most important activities is tourism although cattle production and the fishery industries are also significant.
