DESCRIPTIONColca Canyon in Peru is the second deepest canyon in the world and is twice as deep as the Grand Canyon in the United States. The area is dotted with traditional villages and pre-Inca and Inca stepped agricultural terraces that are still in use today. To reach these high steppe plains of the Andes, one has to endure high altitudes and long drives passing through stretches of stark volcanic landscapes. The landscape gradually changes from desolate rocky desert to verdant pastures where farmed alpacas graze. The air is crisp and clear and there is nothing but silence other than the wind and the humming of the alpacas.
AUTHORBeatrice Wong is an avid traveler based in Hong Kong and has visited over 100 countries. Through her travels, she developed a passion for photography. She started her travel blog documenting her extensive travels in 2016 and in 2018 became one of the official Fujifillm X-Photographers.
Beatrice is drawn to remote places for their dramatic landscapes as well as slowly disappearing culture and traditions. She strives to capture these incredible experiences and share this sense of forgotten peace and tranquility with others. Photography transcends language and cultural barriers. She hopes that through her lens you will be inspired to appreciate nature and make an effort to become more environmentally conscious. These breathtaking landscapes are under threat and unless something is done, we may be left with only photographs and memories.
