Early Morning Sun on Huayna Picchu

Category: Sense of Place


Photo and caption by Barbara NEWBY

Arrival at Machu Picchu National Park found the sun hidden behind a heavy blanket of fog and cloud cover. But within minutes the clouds moved with such speed as to lift and to simply leave mere traces of the fog and clouds to expose the ancient village below Huayna Picchu below Heavens Gate on the Inca Trail.

Location: Machu Picchu National Park, Machu Picchu , Peru
