Peruvian Camping


Shot whilst camping on the Salkantai route, at 5000m, in the Andes. The clouds only parter for just long enough to catch this shot and the glacier behind was illuminated by a beautifully full rising moon. The lights from within the tents came from my co-expeditioners settling down for the night in the perishing cold.
