Machu Picchu -7 The Sacred Valley

…Another day full of remarkable sights and images. The terraced Inca crop circles at Moray date back to the 13th century, each level with its own microclimate. Then on to the pre-Incan salineras or salt pans at Maras, which create a stunning abstract landscape. Something for the studio when we´re home. We then hiked down to the valley, pausing to enjoy the beauty of the Urubamba river before lunch and a quite afternoon to help acclimatize to the altitude. On to Pisac and Cusco tomorrow before meeting our hiking group on Monday evening. It´s getting closer!…


  1. Getting more and more green eyed! What WONDERFUL scenery – and as for the paintings back home, wow Andrew you’ll be ‘lost’ in the studio for weeks!xx


  2. Great photos Andrew – we remember being amazed by the crop circles, and by the salt pans – a surreal but functional landscape. Bon Voyage! Laurence
