Welcome to Machu Picchu. The world's largest rat maze.

Unveiling Machu Picchu, Peru
Early morning deep in the mountains of southern Peru sits arguably the most beautiful site on the planet, Machu Picchu. Every morning the ruins start covered in a thick blanket of cloud, but as the sun starts to rise, the mist slowly dissipates revealing the stunning scene underneath. It's not just the ruins that make this place so magical, it's also the surrounding landscape.
When I first arrived at the Sun Gate, I couldn't see a thing. The entire site was in a dense fog. But patience is a virtue, and after an hour and a half of waiting, the ruins were finally revealed. It did not disappoint!
This was actually my second time visiting Machu Picchu, and comparing all of my photographs of the ruins bathed in the different kinds of light, I much prefer the this latest moody shot as I feel it much more represents the enchanting feeling you have watching the scene unfold.
