Photographer's Note

Another repost of a picture of my trip to the Andes, in which I've also tried to recover the overexposed sky of the original version.

Original note:

Tiwanaku is an important Pre-Columbian archaeological site in Bolivia. Tiwanaku is recognized by Andean scholars as one of the most important precursors to the Inca Empire, flourishing as the ritual and administrative capital of a major state power for approximately five hundred years. The ruins of the ancient city state are near the south-eastern shore of Lake Titicaca.

Tiwanaku is the nearest spelling to the original name in Aymara. In Quechua, the language of the Incas, it is called Tiahuanaco. Both languages didn't have writing before the arrival of the Spanish.
