I saw the shadows as balancing the pic...




I loved the light and depth... great harsh shadows showing off the shapes and colors...


good job!

Jack I also believe that the shadows balances the composition, thanks Simanta for your point of view.

Mike, that rythm is an architecture's attribute. You can see it everywhere in Machu Picchu and particularly in one place near the path to Huayna Picchu where a large ceremonial carved rock mimics exaclty the profile of the mountains behind it, at several miles of distance.

Jacques, this shot was taken in last November so yes, I was lucky because it was already rains season, and although the clouds were there in the early morning disturbing most of all possible MP's angles, the afternoon used to be clear and bright. So this one was possible because I decided to miss a train. :) The absolute best moment for taking pictures there is around May and June.

Sarah, thanks for stepping by.

Me das un pelín de envidi sana. Este es uno de los lugares que estoy soñando en visitar. Seguiré soñando!

Gracias Angel y Alberto por sus comentarios.

Alberto, there's another hint on the scale of MP here. If you carefully look at the Huayna Picchu summit in this photo (large pic) you'll notice a house-like construction near the top, without its roof. More precisely in the left side, on top of a large shadow. Well, you can take a closer look to the scale of that summit by going to this other picture (link). I hope you'll enjoy it.

A nice shot....... I though you might be interested in a slightly different perspective on the same site. (Should be linked below)


We did the four day standard treck to get to MP, rain and snow for the first three days so we saw nothing - but a bit of sun at Machu Picchu made up for it all.

Augusto and Jack..


I was wrong.. I just happened to see this photo once again now, and I find it different from my first view, yes, shadows are balancing the picture, - cause otherwise the bottom-left conrner would have been dull.. don't know why I said that shadows on this photo was harsh.. may be I got that impression at a first glance..But..anyway...
