Qengo is a small but interesting site near Cusco. There the Incas carved out their ceremonial spaces in the existing rock rather than bringing in the massive stones that they used so frequently for construction.

We arrived in time to see the site but too late to take pictures--except for photos of the glorious evening sky!

Qengo sounds like a very interesting place, Marilyn. The evening sky is really marvelous and the last light of the day adds mystery to this beautiful photo. Greetings, Anne

You've managed to capture a beautiful moment. Bravo Marilyn!

Thank you, Pepe. It was too late in the day to photograph the sight we had come to see, but if we had been there earlier, I would have missed this view!

It was, Marilyn, but I could so easily have failed to notice it, feeling sad that it was getting a bit too dark to get a good view of the ancient site itself. Then I noticed that the _ real view_ was the one across the valley! Chers, Marilyn
