Photographer's Note

I took this shot during my two day trip to the islands of the Titicaca Lake. This picture was taken on Taquile Island (Isla Taquile). This inhabitant of the island, dressed with the typical clothes, is dragging his things to the top, as there aren't cars on the island. On Taquile Island, there isn't electricity, so at night the sky is beautiful: you can observe hundreds of thousands of stars.

For this shot I waited a moment for someone to pass through the arch, to get something more in the picture. I gave it the name "Stairway to Heaven" because the man will have to walk a lot of stairs before he gets to the top of the island, which is very high (about 4100m) ;-)

Hope you like it... Comments are welcome!

Greetings,
Thomas
