This photo was taken at Cumbemayo north of Cajamarca in September, 2011.

Cumbemayo is a rocky formation that appeared in the Tertiary Period (marks the beginning of the Cenozoic Era). The excursion included a hike of 4-1/2 km (about 2.8 miles).

Wind and erosion has given these rocks unique shapes that resemble animals or people.

During the excursion, a canal was discovered. Made by the ancient Caxamarca people about 2,000 years ago, petroglyphs were observed as well evidence of the knowlege this people had of physics and hydraulics.

The photo was taken at 11:00 a.m. with a Canon XS and a Canon 18-55 mm lens. It was processed as HDR (3 takes) with HDR Efex Pro and Photoshop.
