Photos from Chichen Itza (World Wonder), Mexico

El Juego de Pelota (Great Ball Court) and Temple of the Jaguars
Chichén Itzá, Mexico

Photos, photos and more photos from Chichen Itza, the Maya city ruins on the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico that has been declared an UNESCO World Heritage site and one of the Modern 7 Wonders of the World.

These photos I took in April while shooting the 1-minute video "Chichén Itzá – World Wonder (Mexico) – In Another Minute (262)" for my web series Moving Postcard.

Go to the video link above to watch that episode and to read more about this amazing site. And if you want to see even more pictures from this day, check out the In Another Minute album on my Flickr page.
