Photographer's Note

The Altiplano is a high plateau between ranges of the Andes, covering parts of Peru, Bolivia, Chile and Argentina at elevations around 3,500 - 4,000 meters (11,000 - 14,000 feet). It is dry, barren, stark and beautiful. Mostly it is grazing land, where inhabited, but here there is a little farmland.

This was shot from a train moving about 80 kph, hence the 1/800 shutter speed. The Altiplano is ideal for such shots, because there are never bushes or trees in the foreground to block the shot or to be blurred.
