Antofagasta at dusk

Most coastal in the Atacama desert are limited by mountains on the east and the sea in the west. Antofagasta is the biggest city in Chilean part of the desert, just less than two miles wide and more than 15 long.
This picture was taken at the blue hour after trekking 3 hours to one of this mountains. It was my third time going to that location and never quite getting what I was after. On the way my tripod broke so I found rocks on the area to keep the camera steady, but I think it was worth it at the end.
The view is looking completely north, to the south the city still stretches another 7 miles.
