Seven peaks shape the extinct volcano named Pichu Pichu. Allegedly the name means “Group of Peaks” It is located near Arequipa city in the Peruvian south. The highest peak is at 5664 meters above sea level (18,356 ft), the height is not much (the city is at 2335 meters/7661 ft) With centuries of history.
As it is toward the East I like to photograph it at morning, in the few times I can wake up so early xP
Other point of view
From the national park behind it looks like this:
Once I climbed up it. It was with the first camera I had… without memory I had just take twelve photographs, from those twelve just three survived the crash of my hard disk. So here I have a lot of memories, but just three photographs :D
Actually the mountain is an old place, quite old… there are mummies and in one of the seven peaks with an Incan platform. We went to a peak where there is a metallic cross. I am doing something I never did before in my blog and is to post a photograph that wasn’t taken by me. It was taken by one of the climbers, I have not his name but thanks and credit to him (we shared among everybody the photos we took) I am the one in the front in white, the others had jackets… me not, because I am from the highlands, actually I feel so much heat in the coast! (I edited the white balance and exposure of the photograph to show it with more clarity) In the background is the volcano Misti.
And that’s all. A mountain with my memories, one that I have climbed to the peak, I am the one of white clothes : )
Well, another Monday in the new world. There is a volcano with a pure shape called Misti. It’s a triangle, the Moon is a circle.
Today I want to show a register of a circle and its bond to a triangle. : )
Every time the moon appears is like it had an invisible bond or tie to the volcano. I adore when the shapes are pure, is like we could choose messages with capitals letters… a direct message without additional ornaments except its own beauty.
Angels of light, floating almost transparent over distant mountains; an intense fire are the eyes of a lady, haunting them to be closer to a forbidden Earth.
Ángeles de luz, flotando casi transparentes sobre las lejanas montañas; sus ojos son atraídos por un fuego intenso en el corazón de una dama. Hechizados no pueden dejar de volar sobre la prohíbida Tierra.
Chachani in Aymara language means valiant, brave… It’s an active volcano near Arequipa city in the Peruvian south. It’s located at 1,963 m (6,440 ft) above the sea level and its height (measuring from base to top) is 6,057 m (19,872 ft) But those six kilometers are easy to climb, I would make it but I prefer rocky mountains. It’s not the tallest volcano in the region but it’s nice to see, specially at afternoon.
Closer to him
This is what you would see from the desert in the morning, if you’re coming from Lima city.
When you see the ichu (the yellow grass) is signal that you are quite close to Arequipa city.
And if you distant traveler come from the highlands this is your view of the Chachani, it has a dry beauty and a cold hug.
These photographs are longer pictures.
And that’s all. If I have so many photographs is because the Chachani is always there so close to the city and the roads, it says you where you are and how much it takes to go to your destiny.
Another Monday and actually the moon doesn’t care that my lips mention her name.
Another Monday and actually the moon doesn’t care about a dumb man building a stair.
Another Monday and actually the moon just doesn’t care.
