[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
You are looking at Lake Titicaca (as seen from the Isla del Sol), the largest lake in South America (8372 kmē) and, at 3812 m above sea level, the highest commercially navigable lake in the world. The snow-capped Bolivian Andes tower in the background, albeit overly large due to the 18x optical zoom.
The Bolivian Naval Force uses the lake to carry out naval exercises, maintaining an active navy despite being landlocked! I wonder what the Austrians and Swiss think of that?!

Hi Michael.
I like your perfectly composed picture of this nice place and majestic mountain. Excellent soft light and delicate colours, sharpness of the whole image is superb too. My compliments and TFS. Very nice art shot.
