Postcards from Readers: Beautiful Altiplano day in the High Andes

The photographer: Steven A. Steinbrecher of Pollock Pines

Behind the lens: My wife and I were aboard the PeruRail “Andean Explorer” enroute to Puno and Lake Titicaca from Cuzco, Peru. We had stepped out onto the back “patio” of the train’s club car so my wife could get increased exposure to oxygen at this altitude and enjoy the stellar views, and I captured this beautiful panorama of blue skies, storm clouds brewing, bright green grasses and wildflowers.
