Well. it is not much, but to my surprise, National Geographic selected three pictures of mine when they finalized their selections of 11 photos for "Machu Picchu Pictures".
And here is my third photo of Huayna Picchu, or called as Wayna Picchu meaning "Young Peak". As I mentioned before, I was with a tour group and I could not use the tripod for many reasons. I hear that tripod was not allowed anyway.. So.. handheld, using 18-200mm at 200mm without breathing...
I will add one more picture of the classic Machu Picchu photo below to show the Huayna Picchu as well as the shot I posted earlier, "Urubamba River Gorge".
Enjoy! (Yes, I love to go back there.)
Huayna Picchu Terraces

Terraces are carved high on Huayna Picchu. For decades Machu Picchu was a puzzle for archaeologists and historians.
A 16th-century legal document and studies of the site’s architecture and artifacts in the latter 20th century
have suggested a mountaintop retreat for Inca ruler Pachacutec Inca Yupanqui.
