Photographer's Note

Another picture taken from the road to the bottom of the Colca Canyon.

This was probably about halfway there. The first stretch of the road travels around a valley, and then the second half consists of intense switchbacks. They're about to start shortly after this picture was taken.

The whole photography thing was pretty hard... i didn't use autofocus for most of the trip in order to conserve battery, but it really wouldn't have done a whole lot for me in this situation anyways... i was bouncing around pretty bad. As it was, manual focus proved pretty fun to try to fine-tune, all the while using a wide-open aperture to keep the shutter speed to a minimum to eliminate motion blur.

The interesting reds of the mountains against the intense blue sky caught my attention in this one, as well as the stretch of our road visible at the bottom.
