Category: Sense of Place


Photo and caption by Carmen Rose

This picture was taken moments after a heavy rain left the historical capital of the Inca empire in a hazy, humid veil. The sunset served to further accentuate and silhouette the Arco de Santa Clara against the hills in the background.

Location: Cusco, Peru
