Photographer's Note

The water color in this photo is actually the color it looks ... a kind of blue ink color. The altitude also makes the sky seem more blue as well. Crater lake is about 7500 feet up and is a filled crater to an active volcano. The last eruption was about 8000 years ago where the top of a 12,000 foot volcano sunk ... leaving a large hole that is now filled with water and is the deepest known lake. A unique place.
