Guardian of Machu Picchu

2007 International Photography Exhibition
“Guardian of Machu Picchu"
Location: Machu Picchu, Peru
Photographer: Kathleen Zwanziger
Category: Places
Award: Honorable Mention

In the photographer's words: "Huayna Picchu looked every bit of its thousand feet higher than the Inca city of Machu Picchu, with no visible path to the top. Yet this was our project for the morning: climb to the summit of "Young Mountain." Two hours later we had achieved our goal. High in the Andes we looked down on Machu Picchu and, far below that Inca city, the Urubamba River in the Sacred Valley."
