Artist's Description


Captured in Tikal (Guatemala) from the top of Templo IV, one of the Maya temples hidden in the jungle. The sunrise tour started at 4:00 am with a 30 min hike through the pitch dark jungle, then climbing the Templo IV, all the time with the accompaniment of the tremendous roars of the Howler Monkeys . The sunrise was not to hazy, what happens only a few times in the year.
Tikal is one of the largest archaeological sites and urban centres of the pre-Columbian Maya civilization in Central America. It was the capital of a conquest state that became one of the most powerful kingdoms of the ancient Maya from 4th century BC until ca. 200 to 900 AD.

Camera Nikon D600, 1/125 sec at f/5.6, focal length 28 mm, ISO 160, lens Nikkor 28-300mm.
