Beautiful shot! Congratulations Eva

Thanks, Eva. I am glad you like it.

Most of what you see is a Spanish colonial cloister, but it was built over and around an Inca temple. The slanted line opposite the stairway is the edge of an Inca wall!

Another intriguing doorway Marilyn :-), you just want to get through there and see it all.

Excellent shot.

This is a wonderful composition, Marilyn, showing so many layers of depth! I like the stairway just beyond the arch. Cheers, Ryan

Thanks, Ryan. I'm glad you think this works. It's one of those views that "needed" to be photographed, but as you said, there were so many layers. I'm more confident in simpler situations! Cheers, Marilyn

A beautiful way to frame the village. Wonderful textures and delicate earth tones! Greetings, alicia

Thank you, Alicia. The Inca wall isn't prominent in this photo (it's the slanting wall to the right of the opening), but again I just had to try to to get a shot that would include it. The Spaniards used the Inca site, and now people have made visible some of what the Spaniards obscured. Greetings, Marilyn
