Night in the Andes

Category: Nature


Photo and caption by Ben Leshchinsky

Only a few kilometers near Machu Picchu, we camped on mountain for some brief rest before an early morning hike to Machu Picchu. After seeing the view of the valley floor illuminated by a nearby village, I had to take a photo - a 3 minute exposure - to capture the surreal beauty of the surroundings.

Location: Urubamba Valley, near Cusco, Peru
