[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Our bus barreled around tight corners in the Peruvian sierra at harrowing speeds--sometimes, two buses would race each other and try to pass each other on turns because whoever got in front would get more passengers and thus more money. the road in this photo is certainly one of the wider ones in the country (excluding lima and big cities), but the speed limit sign captured everything i wanted to say about sketchy transportation in Peru.

Welcome to TL !

Great first photo.
Have a good time here !



You've hit the jackpot.
A great choice of b&w colour.
The clouds looks like aliens inviting to come and join them into their world :)

Reminds me of Independence Day.

Dont know what camera you have used, but you might consider a red filter to enchance the contrast between the clouds (to make them more dramatic and outstanding) and the rest of the area.

Que buena perspectiva, y el blanco y negro le cae bien a esta foto.
Bienvenido a TL!
