All the magnificence of this ancient settlement is captured in this single photo. Yes, it definitely is.

The sky is amazing. The clouds give it a ''turbulent'' look, but it definitely adds to the beauty of the photo. It is almost as if the Heavens embraced the mountains around, swallowing the Andes in the background, surrounding the ancient city.

The quality is excellent. The play of the colours is beautiful, shifting from the darker shades to the brighter ones in the front. The sunlight enlightens the old walls and the patches of green leading to the very heart of the mountain.

And yes, it would definitely look better without people - not that they ruin the harmony, but it would look more ''surreal'' and ''timeless''. This way, it is put into twenty-first century, but without them, we could allow ourselves to imagine... it would really be like a photo from an article. It'd say it would be definitely worth of National Geographic. Who knows, we might even see it there in future. The time will show.
What do you think?

Well, a friend and me took one month vacations, got the tickets, took the backpacks, and went on into a new continent without anything there pre-booked :)
We did have a general plan on where to go and what to see, but it changed daily based on new circumstances and information we got there... it was fun, at times scary, but ultimately quite an experience.
And it sure made my parents worry a lot :)

e.g. one crazy episode involved taking a 26-hour bus from Chile to Peru, which after an hour of driving turned off road and into the desert in the middle of the night, with passengers all thinking we're about to get robbed/kidnapped (passengers being two of us, two Irish guys, and about 10-15 local Peruvians).
We later realized that the reason for that was that the bus company had no license so the driver was avoiding police patrols on the main roads :D

This caused the bus to go through the cold mountains overnight. Half the windows could not be closed, ice was forming on the rest of them, and we were freezing and trying to stay awake.
The mountain road was narrow, unlit, and had a cliff on one side all the time.
We later realized another thing - the bus company lost the license because one of their buses fell off the cliff a few weeks ago and everyone died.

One coldest night of my life (and two bus searches by the military!?) later - I woke up on Lake Titicaca to watch the warmest sunrise in my life. Never been so happy to be alive lol

An outstanding place and a fantastic photowork! I like the view perspective and the light and colors are really great. The background mist makes the main subject to stand out.

Hahah, yeah, me too... but the light was crappy for the first part of the day, and when I finally got this nice light to witness, the people were crawling all over the city and could not be avoided. Motivation to come again ;)
