17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Geometry of the Sun

Teotihuacan means 'the place where the gods were created', and that's the feeling once you visit this archeological site of Mexico. This pyramid, the third-largest of Earth, was dedicated to the god of Sun, and its geometrical perfection can only inspire admiration for the civilization that build it. The grandeur of this behemoth is even greater compared with those tiny dots of humanity in the frame. Seemingly insignificant, but in the end also the makers of this wonder.
