Photographer's Note

Another picture taken on the hike out of the Colca Canyon after visiting the mine at which many of the men of Choco work. As i wrote a few posts ago, we ran out of water about halfway through the hike back to Choco.

This picture was taken after we managed the intial climb from the riverbed. The return to Choco started with 1000-1250 feet (300-375 meters) of near-vertical climb up steep, loose dust. From there our route stayed fairly level for a while, traversing across 100-150 year old Spanish ruins established on the harsh dusty plain of the ledge in the mountainside that defined the canyon.

i wanted to present the dry feeling of the landscape with this one, so for my foreground i used a backlit cactus, highlighted by a fringe of light diffracting around the needles.
