This is another image taken on a visit high up in the Andes in the Northern part of Argentina - known as Laguna Brava '' Brave Lagoon ''
The little craters which are dotted around this unique paradise are '' cold water craters & interesting to see...
Being so high up in the mountains over 4300 metres above sea level there is a haziness to the surface of the rugged terrain caused by the low oxygen levels.

nice the view of the Brave Lagoon,with the water in the crates to be so interesting,colourful and unique.
I like the excellent contrast of the colours,the brilliant light management, as the spectacular sight of the place.

What amazing colors! They are satured, surreal. That's a beautiful place.
However, the sharpness could have been better.

Hello DAwn ,
A magnificent wild landscape , with amazing contrasted colors and an outstanding clarity of the atmosphere . I like especially the clouds rolling over the darl mountains in the BG .

Hello Dawn - This is just the kind of wild landscape I enjoy. Marvellous colours and textures. Pity about the sharpness/focus which looks as if you have over processed the shot a bit and you have accumulated halos on contrasting edges. Beautiful image and worth having another look at in PP. Warm regards Rosemary

It's nice to see that you use more and more
the space in your pictures. This makes the
pictures nice calmness. Point of view and
composition are great: picture has nice
layers and that creates a nice depth.

Hi Dawn. Surreal and strange topography for those unfamiliar with what South America has to offer. Amazing colours everywhere. Regards. Klaudio.

splendido questo paesaggio argentino nel quale non mancano colori e contrasti.
E' una foto di grande effetto e piacevolissima in tutto, ma soprattutto per i colori che sembrano frutto di un'opera di un pittore.
Ma quella che tu hai ripreso è la tavolozza della natura ben più ricca di quella di un pittore.
Ciao e buona giornata

this is a beautiful shot, yet another in your excellent series from Argentina. I have never seen this kind of natural effect, so doubly great for me to see this. The red colours in the foreground look like another world from the flat plain and blue sky. Really nicely composed scene.
All the best

J'aime beaucoup cette composition.Assez étonnant de voir toutes ces couleurs dans un cours d'eau. C'est sur que je ne m'y baignerais pas, mais c'est superbe pour les couleurs de la photo.
marina7 (8049) 2013-04-19 10:00
stunning view! It does feel cold even with that brightly colored red water and the warm colors of the rocks in the lake. Amazing picture and place, you were lucky to enjoy it.

A real extraordinary natural site!

It seems to be a some kind of color palette of Mother Nature. Beautiful colors, fantastic place captured by you masterfully with excellent composition, wonderful natural features and perfect quality of the picture. Very good job!
ourania (26456) 2013-04-21 10:43
an amazing palette of brilliant, rich and vivid colours that have been arranged superbly all over the frame. The textures are fascinating too, the powerful light and your excellent contrast management have brought out the striking character of this place very effectively. A wonderful picture, congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great week,
PS. The gentleman in my photo is not my husband (in fact he is someone else's:) He's one of the two gentlemen in whose company I discovered this lovely place.

dear dawn great location and fantastic warm colors in this place with all suggestions
eldancer1 (25206) 2013-04-21 12:17
Beautiful and colorful landscape! I imagine the colors of those algae are due to low oxygen level? Nicely captured with good lighting and dof with nice details. Nice catch of the white clouds, and wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.
Sonata11 (33157) 2013-04-21 20:21

Un paysage incroyable par sa composition et ces couleurs fantastique, c'est tout simplement magnifique
mirosu (12544) 2013-04-23 1:21
What a truly scenic and colorful photo this is. Fantastic composition, I really like the horizontal arrangement which gives it another dimension. The mountains are amazingly clear and concise and are in splendid contrast with the blue sky and bright water surface. The colourful lagoon in foreground adds nice hue to the scene. This looks to be a well thought out arrangement and execution. Great light management and sharpness make this image even better. A real impressive photo, my compliments!

What a wonderful iron oxide enriched crater which are rare in world. The soft lights and colors added more attraction. Great clarity, superb composition and excellent contrast you captured. Very well done.
josepmarin (57507) 2013-04-25 2:30
a breathtaking landscape in this capture, I can enjoy the amazing colors of the lagoon and its beautiful light.
The silhouette of the mountains in background and the white clouds on the sky add a good aesthetical level to your composition.
It's a great work.
jhm (135238) 2013-04-25 4:36
The colours are amazing, maybe a little to saturated, but pleasant
Absolutely a wonderful picture.
Nice panorama view with a lovely background.
Excellent composition, lovely presentation, TFS.
Have a nice day,
adores (34408) 2013-04-25 13:28
Surely an amazing landscape! The colours and the composition are very good. I like your pov, putting all these colours and textures in foreground.
Didi (55047) 2013-04-26 10:06
Strange and interesting landscape from an another planet.
Nice deep foreground
It's a good place to make a large panoramic view
jusninasirun (17156) 2013-04-28 5:18
Amazing colors of this crater set up against fine setting. The picture is like a painting with vibrant colors and details.
Thanks and kind regards.
Kielia (22913) 2013-04-29 6:16
you are presenting an excellently composed impression of this fascinating piece of nature. Your POV works very well and you really made me curious to learn more about this place. The colors are also fascinating. My compliments!
corjan3 (2025) 2013-05-08 3:01
Are the red and yellow colours caused by iron oxide (haematite) and iron hydroxide (goethite)? And why would it be concentrated here? You achieved wonderful depth of field with the wide angle of your lens. Interesting composition with the cloud formations in the background almost simulating the shapes in the foreground. Will try and find out more about the cold water craters. Kind regards.
jmdias (52650) 2013-07-24 1:56
very beautiful the colors of the water and this red that created a precious contrast with the other natural colors. nice view of this landscape.
PS:here we are facing minus 2,5 Celsius, plantations are over.
colinbrenchley (6431) 2013-09-03 15:16
Dawn, Nice shot of a part of the world that I would have loved to have visited. Unusual and colourful. I like the use of the foreground as the predominant part of your image.
Miguel82 (20308) 2013-09-14 0:42
That lake is a unique geological phenomenon Dawn, a unique place of Andes located at high altitude, the blue colors of the sky is very nice
no it was afternoon, I didn't try the bratwurst but pancakes with nutella
thanks, all the best
kato (11630) 2013-09-23 4:39
You're capturing well this place by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the crater with red fire, and calm lake and low mountain range in back. It seems to beautiful color harmony. Anyway, gods sometimes makes the mysterious and unbelievable geographical spots. This is one of them.
photoray (10195) 2013-10-05 18:28
Unusual and attractive Nature multi-colored landscape, reminiscent of America's Yellowstone. The pool in the foreground appears to be geyser like.
Curious_Eye (992) 2014-05-31 13:45
Your pictures have certainly strengthened my desire to travel to Argentina one day. The landscape is breathtaking and the colours just fabulous! I also enjoy your note.
I hope this message finds you well, this is my first day on TE after a long break.
