Day Six – The Sacred Valley, Peru 15-01-2014

Another 4:45am alarm bell goes off, the destination – the same as yesterday at dusk, hoping to get some clearer light to do justice to the spectacular sight of the Pisac Ruins. 25 Sols pays for a taxi one way to the top and you can walk back down to the village of Pisac from, one of the most beautiful walks I’ve done in a long time.

After waiting for around an hour the sun finally began to burn through the clouds, lighting the distant mountains and hillsides, I used the Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 to get in tight on these far away patches of light, with a polariser filter helping to add contrast to the sky and retain clarity through the haze. From there I wondered along the path, stopping further down to shoot the ruins. A beautifully tranquil morning – in the 3 or 4 hours up there I only say a couple of people!
