Photographer's Note

The last leg of the Inca Trail to Machu Pichu descends from the Intipuncu (Gate of the Sun), high above, into the ruins of the city. You can barely see some parts of the city in the opening in the clouds. The peak to the right of it is Huana Pichu, which is prominent in most of the classic pictures of the site. Of the people who hiked up the kilometer to the Gate of the Sun from the city that morning, it seems that we were the only ones who were rewarded with some glimpses through the clouds, as we looked back toward the main site on the way up. After this picture was taken, the clouds thickened again and that was it. Unretouched, just resized for TE, some level correction and mild unsharp mask.

La derni鋨e 彋ape de la Piste des Incas vers Machu Pichu descend des hauteurs de l'Intipucu (Porte du Soleil) jusqu'aux ruines de la cit. Dans cette photo, on distingue peine un peu de la cit dans l'嶰laircie. Le sommet juste droite est Huana Pichu, qui figure dans la plupart des photos classiques de l'endroit. Il semble que, parmi ceux qui grimp鋨ent jusqu' la Porte du Soleil ce matin, nous avons 彋 les seuls apercevoir un peu la cit, en regardant en arri鋨e pendant l'ascension. Just apr鋊 cette photo, les nuages se referm鋨ent pour de bon. Clich non retouch, seulement redimensionn, un peu de correction de niveau et "unsharp mask".
