The Lost City by michaelanderson The Lost City by michaelanderson
The warm rays of sunrise begin to burn off the morning fog over the lost city of Machu Picchu. I was lucky enough to be on the first train back to the ruins after the disastrous floods of winter, 2009. This was the first day in nearly 4 months that the park had received any visitors. And it was empty at sunrise!

How lucky... an empty Machu Picchu! A rare thing to witness ;) Apart from the rare unspoilt view, a great capture too :) The fog (that can be quite annoying from this viewpoint) gives the setting an even more mysterious appearance. Great shot.
