Photographer's Note

I tried to avoid the typical travel brochure images of Machu Picchu. This photo, taken from the top of Huayna Picchu, the peak behind Machu Picchu, illustrates the symbolic shape of the entire exposed Inca settlement as a condor (you may need to use some imagination here). The walk up this steep peak was exhausting after 4 days trekking but it certainly sifts away the bumbag toting day trippers and affords some extraordinary views of the surrounding landscape.
