Ollantaytambo was the royal estate of Emperor Pachacuti during the Incan Empire. It served as a stronghold for Manco Inca Yapanqui during the time of the Spanish conquest of Peru. In modern times it is a fascinating stop for tourism, as the ruins sit at nearly 2.8km’s in altitude, and is a common place to commence the four day Inca Trail trek to Machu Picchu.
This shot is a panorama consisting of 8 photographs stitched together. Each taken @ 10mm focal length. So while the area is actually quite close, the ultra-wide perspective gives the scene quite a bit of depth.
