The Observer at Machu Picchu

Category: Places


Photo and caption by Emily Cornelius

While visiting Machu Picchu in July of 2011 this llama decided to follow the tourists and walked down the path just in front of me. I was able to snap his photo with my Nikon point and shoot just in time before he walked down the stairs. The next shot that I took miliseconds after this one is an iconic photo of Macchu Picchu but with the llama's rear end. It was truly being in the right place at the right time.

Location: Machu Picchu, Cusco Region, Peru
