The skyline of Tikal, as seen from the tallest structure built in prehistoric Mesoamerica - Temple IV. You can see the back of Temple III to the right of center, with Temple II in front of Temple I to the left. You can even see the top of Temple V peeking over the hill to the far right. The rest of the city, though filled with structures, is hidden by the jungle. Does this picture remind anybody of Star Wars? This Mayan site (and I believe this exact camera position) were used as the planet "Yavin" in the famous Sci-Fi movie.
