You are so beautiful to me.

I love mountains, for me they are a constant reminder that God can answer the silliest and most impossible of prayers like the one I prayed when I was 21 years old; “please send me to mountains one day.”

In the last 3 years, I have lived alongside some of the worlds epic mountain ranges. In 2010 I had a little house right beside the Drakensberg Mountains in South Africa. The mountains in the area I was in were more like rolling hills than imposing giants but they were beautiful nonetheless. Immediately after that I spent almost a whole year living besides North Americas Rocky Mountains. For me, the Rockies are majestic and demand your respect, I think they will always be my favorite. Now that I am living in Peru, I am surrounded by South Americas legendary Andes Mountains. This weekend I got my first opportunity to come face to face with them. I must say, from the little that I saw, they did not disappoint.

I don’t have the best of cameras,ย  it’s an oldย  Sony Cyber-shot 6.0 megapixels. Most of the time it has a mind of its own and when I use it I am constantly praying that it wont die on me. Its a small wonderย  that people I don’t even know like my pictures.

So here are just a few shots of my view of the Andes, I do hope many more will follow. All the pictures were taken in a moving bus so forgive me if you see anything that is not part of the scenery, its most probably the reflection of something from inside the bus.
