Machu Picchu emerging from the clouds after a rainstorm

We had hiked the Inca trail, and had a horrendous storm right when Machu Picchu came into view. We didn't think we would be able to see anything at all until the clouds suddenly cleared and we had this view on the way down. We were lucky it happened just in time!
