Peru & Machu Picchu
This beautiful brown and yellow bell flower grows on a small tree. It was worth carrying the macro lens along after all! The porters carried everything except our day packs with water, jackets, gloves, hats - and of course cameras and film. We were also given a little plastic bag for emergencies to be sure that we would only leave footprints behind. Over 4 tons of trash were cleaned up along the trail last year before the rules were made more strict.
