Florence Goupil won 3rd PLACE in the PORTRAIT category with her picture of Julian at the sacred mountain of Ausangate.
"Ausangate is one of the most important mountains in the Peruvian Andes with an elevation of 6,384 meters. This mountain has significance in Quechua mythology. They call this mountain Apu Ausangate. Apu is Quechua for spirit of the mountain and Ausangate is considered the most powerful mountain of the Andes. The wise Quechua people -or Altomisayoc- say they can speak with the Apu. When the snow falls, he appears dressed in white at the foot of the mountain. At that place I met Julian."
