Photographer's Note

Following on the same day trip out of Ayacucho which I have been showing you on the last few days, this is a picutre taken at Vishcongo. Vishcongo is a small archeological complex a few kilometers away from Vilcashuaman, the old regional inca capital.

Vishcongo, was kind of a spa for Inca nobility. Here, watr was broguht down from the mountains trhough small canals to form a puma shaped lagoon where they could bathe. The water you see in the picture is part of that lagoon.

We had climbed up to the top of the hill behind it, and I decided to use my old tamron zoom lens at its maximum to capture this scene. The first thing that came to my mind when seeing it this way was that its kind of in keeping with Yann Arthus-Bertrand's style. (famous for the book "the earth from above)
