I like to explore….
Oh my goodness, Tania. What a great shot! It’s exquisite.
Yay! Glad you like it Gordon 🙂
I’m having a banner day! My blog just exceeded previous record fo single daily visits (188 views today). Don’t know whether that’s anything special or not, just that it is extremely active for my blog. Any thoughts about what a good number is? I’m still new at this 🙂
Excellent photo Tania!
Thank you lovely Marina 🙂
gorgeous – I’m a sucker for silhouettes
Gosh me too! 🙂
The light in this shot is amazing. I don’t know why, especially as I’ve never met one in person, but I really like llamas.
I had the same response to the light. The variety of forms and colors is splended.
It was certainly a pleasure crawling out of my tent to that sight in the morning! Even if I was FREEZING! Haha.
Llamas are neat animals…I’ve met several, never had one spit on me! 🙂 Last year while I was hiking the Pacific Crest Trail (http://thf2.wordpress.com) I came across two older gentleman out hiking with two llamas. It was surprising but really fun to see llamas in such an isolated spot in northern California!
They are very funny-looking I think. They look almost like a hybrid of several different ‘normal’ looking animals – maybe a sheep, a horse and a dog? Ummm….I don’t know. But they are pretty cool I think 🙂 Thanks Stevie!
Love the shot with the sun glare! I’ve been to that trail in Peru more than once! It’s fantastic! 🙂
Thanks! Oh yes it’s wonderful – I’d love to go again! Yes please! 🙂
Thank you so much! 🙂
Its far from my country, but I hope one day I can visit this place….
Do if you can, you will love it! 🙂 Thanks for dropping by to say hello
Great shot! You can really feel the “morningness” of the moment!
Yes, my initially grumpy, frozen cold and sleep deprived expression also would have illustrated the ‘morningness’ of the moment but in a lot less of an attractive way!! Though once my eyes adjusted to the glare of the light and I saw this, I couldn’t help but smile and feel ready to seize the days trekking! 🙂
THAT..is awesome. 🙂 And you hit it on the head..sometimes, even when in an exotic, foreign location, morning is still morning, and tired is tired…sleepy is still sleepy. I’m glad you shook off the slumber’s cobwebs for this bit of inspiration!
Isn’t that true?! I mean, don’t get me wrong – the experience is awesome and I wish I could travel more – but it’s no ‘holiday’ 24/7. ITS AN ADVENTURE and like any adventure there are tricky things to overcome – dangers even – and it’s not plain sailing all the time but the highs!! The highs, the sights, the people you meet and things you discover (about yourself and the world) – they make it the best thing EVER!! 🙂
Exactly! Some of the most intense moments I had hiking the Pacific Crest Trail last year involved danger or not bring in your regular “place.” Like when two cougars came into my camp at night when I was camping alone, and over 100 miles from the nearest person or town. They stayed until 5:30am, sometimes less than 2 feet away. Talk about intense. Travel means, to me, immersing and seeing from a different perspective. I was in the cougars “house,” and well immersed. Just a visitor on their terms, and they let me know about it.
Great, now you have me wanting to travel to a Llama-filled land and sleep on the ground with my camera! 🙂
Oh WOW!! Amazing story Dug! It’s bad enough camping and hearing strange ‘animal’ noises in the middle of nowhere when you are with other people, let alone being by yourself and knowing for sure that actual Cougars are skulking nearby….!! It must have been very nerve-racking! Great to experience and live to tell the tale though!! I’m very glad they didn’t eat you 🙂
I completely agree with you about what travel is really all about, you have to adjust yourself quite dramatically in some instances when you are in a place or situation out of your comfort zone. It can be challenging but it is also fascinating and it allows you to ‘live’ rather than just ‘exist’ 🙂 You would adore Nepal….
very nice sun flare
Yes I like this photograph my friend 🙂
very beautifully captured…
Thank you very much! 🙂
This is a great photo! I was at Machu Picchu 30 years ago, and still remember being amazed at the site. We walked up the road so that we could get there before all the ‘tourists’!
Thanks Mike! Yes that Llama was a lovely gift that morning….such a beautiful place and challenging, awe-inspiring adventure those four days were! 🙂
Exquisite. Even though I know it’s a lawn ornament, it still looks good. : )
Somone has a great sense of humor. LOL. Touch it and wipe the spit from your face.
Awesome as usual!
great photo! Love the colors, the shadows and the the way the llama is standing…
What a terrific shot…looks like the llama is posing especially for you 🙂
