THE LOST CITY OF THE INCAS
The Inca citadel of Machu Picchu in Peru is one of the world's most spectacular ruins. Temples, houses, staircases and agricultural terraces were built high among rugged and forested mountains with distant snow-covered Andean peaks providing a dramatic backdrop. We may never know what drove the Incas to build in this almost inaccessible location, or the true purpose of their remarkable achievement.

The room blocks at Machu Picchu are separated into discrete groups, separated by narrow alleyways. In many cases the finely cut stone architecture abuts steps and other architectural elements cut into the native bedrock. Most of the buildings have single width walls and had steeply pitched thatch roofs; the largest and most important had as many as three walls to protect the inhabitants.

Hello Tsilla

I like the sharpness which gives a good view of the rock work on the city. I hope you have a series of these images so that we may enjoy your take on history.

Hi Tsilla,
A good capture of the details of Machu Picchu. we usually see the classic overall image looking down on site with the mountains in the BG, it is nice to see someone taking an interest in the details.

Hi Tsilla,

A good downward pov on the ruined stone houses no longer with their thatched roofs. Good sharpness and excellent colour and saturation. Superb textural details and the person adds scale and context. Nice repetition of patterns and shapes. Tfs!

An interesting closer view of the ruins Tsilla.
Very well preserved as we can see here.
The inclusion of the person gives us an idea of scale.
Good higher PoV.
Tfs, regards Jean.

From what I've seen and read in history books those Incans and Mayans are far more advance in there time in just about anything be it architectures or other things. Nice capture of the relics of that era with good lighting and sharp details. Well done, tfs.

Ola Tsilla
