Condor Canyon May 29, 2013
From Chivay we drove up into the mountains, along the Colca valley with its breathtaking views and finally arrived again at the cross of the condor viewpoint.

It was perfect weather for the birds and we saw many condors flying swiftly and silently on the thermals.

They were extremely difficult to photograph as they came with the speed of the wind along the canyon and soared high above us to circle briefly and then glide into the distance.

I took many photos, just trying to track their flight and press the shutter as they neared. Only a handful of these were passable for reproduction, and nowhere near the quality that I would have liked, but I was happy that today I saw the condors and managed to take some photos of them.
