Thanks for submitting

what an amazing scene. The buildings in the foreground really add to this picture.

Buildings?? Graves!!

Those are actually the graves of local miners. They bury above the ground here.

Thanks for the comments.

Not the West Face!!

What you're looking at is actually 2 mountains, in the foreground is Milluni Peak, which is separated from Huayna Potosi. In the background, it is Huayna Potosi but the South/East Face. The main route up this face is called the French route.
Anyway, it is a great photo.

Re: Not the West Face!!

Thanks! Not sure where I got that info from!
I took the picture from the roadside, somewhere near the Tuni area I think.
I'm glad you like it, I think it's one of my best photos ever.
