I think the three peaks of left side are the "Pucajircas Norte" (according with a book of Cordillera Blanca are very similar and I had pictures of Pucajircas of my trip of PerĂº as well; I'm sure of it) and then you had all the peaks (I had a very similar image in the book):
The three Pucajirca Norte (III: 5919m, II: 6030m, I: 6046m), the Pucajirca Oeste (II: 5900m, I: 5900m), the Pucrapucraraju (5790m), the black pyramid of Rinrijirca (5810m) and finally the white pyramid of Taulliraju (5840m). All in the massif of Santa Cruz. Ufffff.. of all this peaks only one had page in SP, my page of Taulliraju, but all the images are of the other face. As well you can attach the image to Cordillera Blanca RAGE.
Great and impressive image Howie

You took a real nice picture from the northern part of cord. Blanca.
I dont`t think there is Taulliraju on this picture, that one would be more to the right. In the middleground you can see in the middle of the picture the southface of Alpamayo, than to the right the big piramide of Quitaraju (and not Taulliraju).
Just in the front of Alpamayo you can see Santa Cruz grande; this peak gives his name to the whole range. To its right is Nev. Abasraju. To its left first you can see Santa Cruz chico and then Santa Cruz norte.

From this direction I`ve never seen the range, thanks for posting!

We make this flight in autumn, too! Really looking forward to it.
On which side in the plane did you sit - left or right side?
