    Clouds dissipate over Machu Picchu


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     ewinter's image was selected as CNN's Travel Photo of the Day for April 4, 2013.
    - rachel8, CNN iReport producer

    Panoramic photo from the top of Wayana Picchu looking down onto Machu Picchu, Peru. Christmas day 2012. It was a rainy morning and the sky was thick with clouds. After a steep hike up, I sat at the top of Wayana Picchu for over an hour, waiting for the blanket of white to clear. This photo was taken as the clouds started to dissipate; the sky opened up and Machu Picchu appeared below with the Andes rising up above it. Everyone around me, who had been waiting for a glimpse of the ruins, paused for a moment, finally able to put into perspective the greatness of the mountain range and the moment.
