Nazca Lines by TarJakArt Nazca Lines by TarJakArt
In the Peruvian Desert, about 200 miles south of Lima, there lies a plain between the Inca and Nazca (sometimes also spelled Nasca) Valleys. Across this plain, in an area measuring 37 miles long and 1-mile wide, is an assortment of perfectly-straight lines, many running parallel, others intersecting, forming a grand geometric form. In and around the lines there are also trapezoidal zones, strange symbols, and pictures of birds and beasts all etched on a giant scale that can only be appreciated from the sky.

While visiting Peru last year I was lucky enough to have the opportunity for a flight over the area.

Isn't this part of the whole idea behind the CHariot of the Gods?

Chariots of the Gods was written to try and explain why these lines were inscribed into the desert.  Largely these theories have been debunked, but there are still a lot of mysteries to be solved about what the lines were meant for originally.

I think they have been put there for a purpose by someone.  I know neither.

I heared of them in a docu. They still haven't figured them out, haven't they? Really cool to see them from a bird's perspective!

No their purpose remains a mystery.  I was a great experience and one I'm happy to have been able to do. Glad you like the shot :)
