With fog draped over the surrounding Andean peaks, this early morning travel photo shows one of the most iconic spots at Machu Pichu, Peru. Translated into “Hitching Post of the Sun” by the discoverers, the “Intihuatana” was used to chart the seasons by the solstices and equinoxes. It was given this name because the priests were tasked with tying the sun to the stone to prevent it from swinging too far and disappearing into darkness. One of two special places for me in Peru, it was partially damaged filming a commercial 10 years after this was captured on a Minolta Maxxam 7000 35mm SLR.
