Machu Picchu from Huayna Picchu
Photographer: Richard Rigterink
Location: Andes Mountains, Peru
Wanting to get a better vantage point, we climbed to the top of Huayna Picchu to be able to look down on the Inca royal city. The picture was hand-held. The thin air of the Andes challenged the climbers, but with the early morning light helped achieve a sharply focused, clear picture.
