the language of nature

The sun is about to rise over Machu Picchu, Peru.


Machu Picchu would have been a site to behold in the late 1400s, with gleaming white granite walls topped by golden-colored thatched roofs. Today, it has a different beauty, with the expose worn stone structures echoing the geometry of the mountains surrounding the site. It's as if the architecture over 500 years has merged with the mountain.
