Photographer's Note

I love mountains. They can always astonish me, they have always something to give me. And I particularly love those fastly vanishing moments, when the first rays of sun reach the peaks, encompassing them with some extremely soft and warm lights.

I was lucky to see this wonder in Peru, too. It happened me in the Cordillera Huayhuash, when I participated to a week-long trekking. On our third day I woke up early for make a short climb to the hill close to our camp. It was freezing and I was soon out of breath, but it was worth to: I could catch these wonderful first lights on the peaks of the central range of Huayhuash. Those peaks - there are about half a dozen of them in one group - are almost all over 6000 metres. The highest one, the Yerupaya has 6634 metres - it is the second highest peak of Peru. From the camp they did not even seem so high - perhaps because the camp itself was at 4300 metres... It was a real wonder anyway, something to remember for a lifetime.
