I was in the top of Yungay cemetery when I did this shot. We can see the green fields in the banks of Santa river. This region suffer a lot with earthquakes and was hit some times by terrible avalanches that came from Huascaran. You can read more about this in my last photo.
This image isn´t nice, the background is overexposed but I wanted you had an idea about how beautiful is this region, very different of other places I show before.

E não deu nem uma tremidinha quando você estava lá? A paisagem é muito bonita e está mostrada de um bom ponto.

I was in Yungay during their early winter and didn't see nearly as much stunning greenery as your picture shows. It's a nice contrast to my memories :)
