Cullicocha Cascades

Uploaded: July 30, 2009 03:42:24


I noticed the outflow of Laguna Cullicocha in Peru's Cordillera Blanca during the hike to camp that afternoon. My primary focus this evening toward sunset was the big peaks of the Santa Cruz massif, but when clouds moved in, I raced back to the cascades where the light was much more interesting. The mountains in the background are the Cordillera Negra. Canon 24-17L, 3 stop ND filter, hard edge, 1.2 sec, f20.
