The great Mayan / Aztecan Pyramid of Chichin Itza, voted one of the 7 modern wonders of the world. This photo is remarkable simply because we pulled off a shot without any other tourists in the picture. That aside, it is still impressive and a lot of fun trying to visual all those sacrificial heads rolling down the staircase. During the equinox the sun keeps one side of the pyramid staircase in perfect shade, yet reveals sunlit triangles in perfect symmetry down that same side in the shape of a Serpent, (using a different serpent for each equinox) – incredible design. We settled for a shot with one side in shade and without people – equally clever in my opinion!
