The Magnitude of Chichen Itza

Nothing portrays scale like a tiny person in the foreground.  So looking back into my Mexico photos, I found this set that nicely portrayed the immense proportions of the pyramid of Chichen Itza.  This temple, often referred to as El Castillo, is actually a pyramid built on top of another pyramid.  Even now, more is being learned about the ancient structure, as more tiers are currently being excavated, making the original structure even larger than what we’ve seen before.

The HDR really brings out the colors and textures of the stone steps, and that is a LOT of steps.
