High Altitude Shopping!

Peru - Gorgeous views from this roadside market - at the highest point in the road between Cusco and Puno.  Here at La Raya Pass (Abra La Raya), the altitude is 14,232 feet above sea level.

About

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!
