Fishing Boats on Lake Titicaca

By handlerstudio  
This will be the last group of photos from Peru. They are all of Lake Titicaca (a name that makes many children laugh) We did not see a single pleasure boat on the lake. No money. These are all boats used for fishing. The lake, in the constant bright hard sunshine looks impossibly deep blue. This image is from Tequile Island, a 500 foot tall island in the middle of the lake, rising to over 13,000 feet above sea level. V2 and V3 are other views from Tequile. In V3, the white in the background is not clouds, it is the Cordillera of Bolivia. V4-7 are images of the marshes of the lake. And, finally V8 is a ship that was brought to the lake in the late 1800's piece by piece and assembled in place (remember, this lake is at 12,600 feet). Used to be coal powered, now oil. So ends this long series of photos. Thank you all for allowing me to share these with you. A beautiful and poor country, and the birthplace of my daughter, Gabby.

The sparkling water in V1 looks really inviting, but the sun on the grasses in V7 makes that one my favourite.
