Mirage :: Peru

Mirage :: Peru

I’m not a slave of darkness, I am the slave of light. – Rumi

When I went to Peru in 2013, I had Machu Picchu on my mind.  It would be hard not to. MP is one of the most historically impressive, well-marketed sites in the world.

The Sacred Valley is so much more than just MP though. This area of Peru is steeped in history, culture, beautiful Incan sites all nestled among gorgeous mountains, valleys and rivers. It is almost impossible not to fall in love with the place.

This image of sunset at Chinchero, one of many beautiful sites in the Sacred Valley of Peru, will be part of an upcoming article in Light & Landscape Magazine.  The magazine will be available through iTunes, so all you iUsers out there, watch for it!

    Slave of Light – that is a great description! Love the light in the image also.

      Right? Aren’t all landscape photographers just that? A slave to the light? lol

        Indeed we are. We seem to measure time by sunrise and sunsets – the time in between is almost an irritation, waiting until the light comes to you. You don’t have to be mad to be a photographer, but it probably helps 🙂

        hahahahaha Sooo sooo true! Although, I did get some pretty spectacular shots on this trip in mid day light, but generally speaking, that magic light is just so damn good. 🙂

        Indeed – that’s what makes it so worth getting up early for.
