Weekly Photo Challenge: Monument


Its not really a monument in the normal sense but Machu Picchu is definitely an incredible testament to the ancient Incan civilization.  It is awe inspiring in its scope as well as its surroundings.  It was definitely a privilege to be there.  This is a photo from one of the upper slopes of the ruins showing the thatched hut that looks over the entire complex.

  2. Wonderful. Now you had me in tears, almost. I went there in the 1980’s and it had been a dream of mine since childhood. The feeling when entering the “gate” and seeing it all from above – I cried like a baby. If I had had the possibility I would have remained there for another day.

    • AnnChristine – I’m thrilled that I could help bring you back to that memory. I have another photo I took just inside the gate, that brings those feelings back to me also – a great and continuing experience!

    • Paige – thought I’d post that photo instead of some of the more common shots you see of the area (although I have all of those also :-)). You will love it!
