Last August I traveled to the Andes mountains in Peru to visit an ancient Indian ruin called Machu Picchu. It is located at 12,000 feet of elevation in the verdant setting you see above. Many of you have at some time seen a picture of this famous site. It is a real classic.
I had hoped for this eery, misty setting. On my second morning there I could see the mist begin to form. It started just above the river 2,000 feet below. Over the next hour it made its way slowly up the mountainside. Finally it drifted sideways and I had the shot for which I had traveled over 5,000 miles.
