Photographer's Note

Machu-Picchu is a very beautiful place under the blue sky and the sun,but something is cruelly missing,it has no life,it is just rocks placed in this or that way,in a semblance of something that we will recognize as a house or something else that looks familiar.
But,to see Machu-Picchu in the presence of clouds, fog or mist,is to really experience it in another dimension.You are brought in the past,you can feel the ghosts coming out of the walls,sharing with you their life.You get to know the city in a very intimate way that is impossible under the burning sun.The mist separates each part of the city,isolates them and gives them a new meaning.When the sun comes out to illuminate part of the city,setting it against another part still with its veil of fog---then it is just awesome,I will never forget Machu-Picchu in its blanket of clouds,playing with the sun.
Hope you can live this one of these days
