"While Machu Picchu is one of the most common landscape photography destinations in South America, there is something spectacular about this particular shot of the ancient landmark. I love the unique way in which natural light travels across the mountain peaks, giving the photo a luminous morning glow. The perfect use of white balance setting lets us appreciate all the natural colours as they are meant to be. The photographer captures the scene with a clarity that only perfect sight could behold." - Rumaisa

"This close up of the popular Rainbow Mountain in Cusco is a delight to view. One can see each layer of colour as well as the trail that goes acoss them on the left. The peaks get more distant as your gaze spread across however one you can each layer of the mountain framing the scene. An absolute fun and bright shot!" - Rumaisa
Photo: Atacama surreal landscape
Photographer: Luc Stadnik
Location: San Pedro de Atacama, Chile
"The photographer captures the driest non polar desert in the world with soft undertones. The shades spread across the horizon not only reflect on the mountains and the sand but also on the salt formations pictured here. The photo echoes a spirit of calm and resilience." - Rumaisa
