Above the Andes
Andes Mountains, Peru
I witnessed this stunning scene of the Andes from the window of a passenger airplane while flying over Peru. I am always amazed at how close huge mountains can get to even modern jet-liners' cruising altitude. I will also always remember this photograph as the first one that taught me the value of Photoshop in my art. The window was so dirty, I could have never recreated the scene as I saw it without help from post-processing.
