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
