New on 500px : El retorno de las cabras by andelpaulmann by andelpaulmann

Después de toda una extensa jornada recorriendo el Valle de la Engorda tras un día de lluvia coincidimos con el retorno del ganado caprino que había recorrido junto al jinete el valle para alimentarse. Las nubes y el sol de la tarde que apenas se asomaba sobre las montañas al oriente permitieron que la luz destacara la interminable hilera de cabras que regresaba a los corrales.

New on 500px : Incan Lost city by mbisof by mbisof

Machu Picchu is a 15th-century Inca site located 2,430 metres (7,970 ft) above sea level. It is located in the Cusco Region, Urubamba Province, Machupicchu District in Peru. It is situated on a mountain ridge above the Sacred Valley which is 80 kilometres (50 mi) northwest of Cusco and through which the Urubamba River flows. Most archaeologists believe that Machu Picchu was built as an estate for the Inca emperor Pachacuti (1438–1472). Often mistakenly referred to as the “Lost City of the Incas”, it is perhaps the most familiar icon of Inca civilization.
