Panoramic Peru

I’m not really a fan of using my iPhone to take photos and my camera comes pretty much everywhere with me. But we ended up using our phones a lot more than usual on this trip as silly old Alex broke our camera by dropping it the evening before we started the Inca Trail – one of the greatest hikes in the world. Yes, I was angry (slight understatement!), and no, he didn’t hear the end of it!

After hunting around the small city of Cusco for hours looking for a repair shop, it somehow magically fixed itself, only for silly old me to go and break it again by getting it wet during a storm in the Amazon Rainforest.  And yes, I was just as angry with myself as I had been with Alex!

Peru seemed to jump out at us with with its stunning landscapes, so we made use of our iPhones and took lots of panoramic shots, from the beaches of Lima to the Amazon jungle and everything in between.

    Ahhhh I hate when you drop a camera right at the start of your holiday…feel your pain and I’m guessing Mr Ayla still has the ringing in his ears….but in all honestly I think iPhones take brilliant photos at the end of the day and these are just stunning. I had been using my iPhone all year for all my blog pictures including our trip to Marrakech.
    Just stalking through your Peru posts….don’t mind me…will comment spam you…
