Remarks & Notes 
Dawn in the desert

It is 5:54 am. The sun has not yet reached the bottom of the valleys when the first of two trains coming down from the mines is negotiating the many meanders around km 110-120 of the Ilo-Toquepala. Take a minute to have a look at Google Maps (click below) to see how amazing the line is at that particular spot.

Position of the photographer: South 17d 23m 14.95s West 70d 51m 20.99s 1517 m / 4977ft
