Machu Picchu

Yesterday I explored Machu Picchu.  The weather cooperated, I got up at 4:15am to get in front of the large crowd of tourists,  and got a few photos.  I present them here.

It's the dramatic version of Machu Picchu here.  I pushed those shadows into black pretty far.  :)

For my blog readers who like people in my photographs.  :)  Also,  gives a better sense of scale of the place.

I like this shot a great deal.  It shows Machu Picchu clearly,  but also shows an interesting new angle that I haven't seen much before,  incorporating these large ring terraces that nicely frame the main subject.

There's a story about this photo,  I am putting it in the next post.

The small town of Aguas Calientes

Aguas Calientes is only reachable via train.  This is a Peru Rail locomotive
