Weekly Photo Challenge: Through

Day 157 – December 26, 2011

This week, the theme of the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge is “through“.

I feel extremely lucky that the family and I, along with my wife’s sister, were able to visit the Incan site known as Machu Picchu. Not only is it an incredible and magnificent place to visit, but it is a photographer’s dream.

My offering this week is a view of the smaller of the two iconic features that comprise the mountain Huayna Picchu. This vista is seen through Machu Picchu’s front door, The Gate of the Sun (Intipuncu).

Clouds, stone, mountain, tourists = the 4 elements of Machu Picchu

If you haven’t, you really should come see this place. You will literally be awe-struck.
