Photographer's Note

The Lake of nicaragua is one of the bigger of the Americas, and the Ometepe Island is the 5th bigger island in a lake.
Ometepe is composed of 2 big volcanos; there are less than 10 villages around the coasts.
The Lake of Nicaragua millions of years ago was a salt lagoon open in the Pacific Ocean. Eruption closed the link with the sea and the water lost the salt.
In the lake there is the only lacustrian shark.
