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.

Morning

As it is toward the East I like to photograph it at morning, in the few times I can wake up so early xP

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 : )

Intersection of Moon and Volcano

This photograph was meant to be posted the Monday but I noticed it was another volcano, not the Misti, instead one called Pichu Pichu. So in honor of truth I decided to post it another day.

Iba a postear esta fotografía el lunes pero me percaté que este era otro volcán, no el Misti, sino uno llamado Pichu Pichu. Así que en aras de la verdad decidé publicarlo otro día.

Cumbres de luz

cumbres de luz

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.

Built to chase the sunrise

Intersection of sunrise and building. I thought in that moment that it looked a bit cinematographic. Now I notice that perhaps I was trying to remember the Tyrell building in which is probably my favorite film ever, Blade Runner. At the beginning when the sun is precisely reaching the bold architecture of Tyrell Corporation.

Of course is just a far evocation. Something like think in a diamond when you see a shine in a grain of sand in the concrete.
