Photographer's Note

Alpamayo trek, Day 6.
We had a tight schedule this last day of the trek, so we woke up very early in the morning (around 5 am). While preparing some hot drink to push away the cold out of our bones we had the oppourtunity to capture this "Peak Illumination", as I call it, of Pucahirca massif (the highest is the north peak, at 6047 meters ASL) . This is a common "phenomenon" in which high peaks are being illuminated first while other parts of the landscape are still kept in shadows, and thus emphasizing the contour and colors of the peak.
