- Title: Overlooking
- Country: Peru
- Nearest Area: Machu Piccu National Park, Peru

- Brief Directions: Its a quick hike uphill from the bus stop to get this view, overlooking the mountain ruins in their entirety.
- Best Season: Summer
- Description: The best times to visit the ruins of Macchu Piccu is during the early or late hours of the day, not only does the angled light make the scene that much more dimensional, but the glut of tourists come on the train for only a few hours in the middle of the day. There are llamas that wander the ruins, and I couldn't resist following them around until they helped me compose this shot, just as the last of the sun's rays came streaming through a cleft in the Andes.
