Photographer's Note

Sacsayhuaman, a name which means "satisfied falcon," is at the head of what the Incas thought of as the puma-shaped city of Cuzco. This mountaintop site overlooking Cuzco was once a fortress and was hosted one of the fiercest battles between the Incas and their Spanish Conquistadors. The fortresses' zigzag ramparts form the teeth of the "puma" and contain rocks weighing as much as 300 tons. -- quoted from www.shsd.org

This image was cropped slightly, and color rebalanced, and slightly level adjusted. This is the result.
