15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Agaveway to Heaven

Whitered agave flourished almost 3 m. high in Moray (Peruvian Andes). Close to the natural biogenetic lab made by Inka's culture in Moray I found this amazing and gigantic agave burnt by the Andean Sun. Suddenly sounds in my brain Led Zeppelin classic "Stairway to Heaven" while "take my breath away" the altitude and mesmerizing beauty surrounded me. It inspired me to shoot this "Natureway" pointing to the clouds fading the Sun.
