Gorgeous Peru Countryside

We’ve left the wonderful city of Cusco (11,000+ feet above sea level) behind and are travelling south towards Puno. Eight of us in a van. And I have my nose pressed against the window.  The scenery is spectacular.  Gorgeous colours. Various shades of greens, browns and even hints of red.

The following photos are taken along the road between Cusco and La Raya Pass, the highest point on the road between Cusco and Puno at 14,232 feet above sea level.South of Cusco_MG_6891.jpg

Day 9 - Friendly Planet - Amazing Peru Tour

Welcome to my travel photo blog. Photography has been a part of my life for a long time – back in the day the Pentax Super Program was always near at hand. But it wasn’t until I started travelling around the world that photography became a vehicle for me to show others about the absolutely amazing and complex world we live in. My hope is to share with you glimpses of what I’ve seen. Enjoy!
