Stormy Skies in Cusco

The Plaza de Armas of Cusco is typically busy with people and awash in a clear, beautiful light almost every day. However on that day, angry clouds were rolling in from the northeast and creating these blueish-gray, intriguing atmospheric clouds that contrasted eerily with the reddish earthy colors of the cathedrals. It felt as if something magical was about to happen.
