Travel Theme: Time

Time is this week’s theme at ‘Where’s my Backpack’, for this theme I chose to show the effect of time at one of the Local archeological sites Moray. Moray is thought to have been an Inca testing grounds, a sort of agricultural laboratory if you will. The design of the site has created a variety of micro climates with temperature variations between the top and bottom terraces of as much as 27 deg. Fahrenheit. This first picture was taken back in September which is the end of the rainy season.

This second picture was taken a mere 4 months later in January, which happens to be the rainy season. Amazing what a little water and some time can do.

      Thanks, had the person down on the terraces been in the same spot, I think some might have accused me of photoshoping the picture.
