Where was this photo taken?
Near Pachacutec pass at about 4700 meters above sea level, between Cancha Cancha to Quisuarani in Peru.

Date, time of day, and weather conditions?
around 8am, mostly cloudy and very close to rain, chilly but hot when the sun was hitting.

What were your feelings or impressions when taking this photo?
I had mild altitude sickness and was exhausted and dizzy, but seeing this skull and this shot blew me away and woke me up more then the Coca tea!

What kind of camera and/or lens did you use?
This was taken with my iPhone 4S, which I had handy in my coat pocket.. it was so close to rain and I was feeling too sick to try and grab my digital out of my daypack. With a little tweaking I was able to bring the foreground light out and it turned out looking surreal.
