Top 20 Photos of 2013 -- #12

Today's edition of the Kuantan Blog's Top 20 Challenge:


April 2013, Perú. At the highest point (4,950 meters above sea level) on the mountain road
between Arequipa and the Cañón del Colca, home of the condors. (Sadly, none of the thousand
condor photos came out well enough to make this Top 20.)

Tomorrow: #11 is one of the few photos from my brother-in-law's wedding I took that
came out well. It made the list because it captured a side of him I didn't know, and probably
won't see again.

  2. Wow! This is really beautiful. I was really attracted to the blue skies, the mountain, the barren soil and the colourful array of the handicrafts. Love this.

    1. Lili, that barren soil really makes the photo special, doesn't it? The perfect contrast for the crafts and their color. Thanks for stopping by!

    1. Wow, a crash course in Swedish! Thank you, Google Translate :D Indeed, Lotta, nothing grows there. It's too high up there in the Andes, and too cold. And yes, the crafts are my favorite part of visiting any country--impossible to choose, haha. Thanks for the visit!
