for we can fly, we can fly, up, up and away my beautiful, my beautiful balloon
i returned last night from a 4 day trek to machu picchu. this was my second big trek, along with colca canyon, in the last couple of weeks and i've no big plans to do anymore in the short term future - i need rest. hopefully that means there won't be any more big gaps in updating the site either. i took this when i was in the pampas in bolivia. i never really had much interest in birds and birdwatching, no matter how colourful they may be they're never as cool as bears or monkeys. this opinion has changed somewhat on this trip and there's something about big birds in flight that are fun to photograph. as a result i spent a lot of time floating down the river in the pampas trying to move my camera at the same speed as the flying creatures. any frustration i had when i messed up the timing was quickly abated due to the abundance of feathered aviators above head.
