This small restored hut close to the ticket office was probably inhabited by farmers who tilled the terraces.
There are many other ruins at the Machu Picchu (2,360 m) - 7,740 feet). The most important are:
The Round Tower - The Inca's Palace - The Princess's Palace - The Grain Stores - The Prison - The Eastern Quarter - The Temple of the Sacred Rock - The Main Temple, etc.
The view from this hut is just awesome. No wonder I took over 100 pictures!

you have a winner over here ... I love this shot of yours .... I like the way you give this shot a third dimension ... as it gives us a good idea about what the view must be like for the farmers staying over here
and it is a splendid view for sure
Thanks for your note .... Cheers

I like your picture. Gives a real sense of how high up this place is. I makes me want the look left and right to see what else I can see.

Beautiful landscape Paul.
You got this picture from an excellent angle, very well captured. Good view, nice colors. Love the contrasts between the small hut with the rocks and the clouds over the mountains.

A great inhabitants eye view of Machu Picchu Paul - the sweeping and spectacular overviews are all very nice but the framing of this one to show the location for an individual farmer is really great - fantastic!

Hi Paul, great picture and excellent point of view. I like the background, that mountains downstairs, very poetic scene. Continue posting your pictures.

Really a great shot. I can imagine how great this view must be. Very nice having the clouds between you and the background forest. Great POV. Good job.

What a stunning image! I very much like the original POV for this photo. The subtle insinuations of what this landscape is really like are intriguing. A very lyrical image and I love it! Congratulations! Sabine

Magnifique photo qui me rappelle bien des souvenirs.
Bonne idée d'avoir fait un gros plan qui donne bien l'atmosphère des lieux.

this is a great shot...the interesting subject, composition, amazing colors...it does not happen too often that we can recognize the depth on the picture...and you got it...

Wow. The composition looking out into the clounds and the blue-green mountian is simply stunning. I need to go to Machu Picchu!

Hi Paul. Beautiful picture. Love the detail in the rocks, the puffiness of the trees. Love the composition.

la qualité de l'image est pas au top ... mais ce paysage est une merveille.
Ces brumes et ces enfilades de pierres .. nickel. Une vue originale de ce coin que l'on connait généralement toujours sous le même angle !!
Bravo et merci du changement !!

I really like this one from Machu Picchu.
It gives a feeling of the city in the clouds - and I like the way you used the hut on one side and the mountain on the other as a frame.
Contrast is maybe a bit high but it makes the colours more vivid.

I think I preferred you do photography. Seems to me you have a varied assortment of works and being a teacher, you would do justice in presenting your works visually and notes.
Here you have an angle which is not a standard tourist work. I would imagine the kind of angle, the farmer himself have had seen this daily. It makes you think why would anyone built something so high up on the mountain.
Merry Xmas Paul and Happy New Year Greeting

Very authentic photo. The hut really stands out to me against all the lush green. I wish I could take in more of that view...I can only imagine.

Good POV and great suggestion of depth! I also like the colours and the heavy clouds!

Fantastic picture. The perspective is wonderful and so is the background with the smoky clouds. Great texture and position of the rocky walls. Congratulations!

What a scenery! The clouds around the mountains create a mystic landscape. Good lightning and sharpness. Best regards.

This is beautifully framed giving a sense of the building and just enough surroundings to let the viewer feel the location.
