This photo is taken from the Sta. Barbara Hill in Copacabana, there is the bay of Copacabana and the part you see is the península of Yampupata.
There is an option to go walking from Copa to the end of the peninsula, takes 5 1/2 hours trek, from there you can catch a boat to the Island of the Sun.
For the less exploring ones, there is a ferry with tour included, twice a day from Copacabana to the Island of the Sun.
Almost all Copacabana is surrounded by the titikaka lake, nice sunsets, and really a very special and beautiful place.
Tech: Balanced levels and saturarion, removed noise from scanning, and cropped instead of resizing.

Great picture. Almost seems like an abstract. Nice colors and contrast.

Very appealing picture! The perfect amount of sky to allow for the color transition of the sunset.

I really like the simplicity and minimalist nature of this. That the pixels are beginning to show suggests that quite a bit of cropping was involved? Nevertheless a really effective image.

Great capture : impressive light and colors, I really like the dark patterns of the peninsula, looking like a crocodile in the water. There are some distorsions (the skyline is a bit curved) bat it's just a little point here... Very nice. Congratulations David.

Nossa!! Linda foto e interessante descrição. Morando no Rio de Janeiro, nunca soube de outra Copacabana que não fosse a nossa praia. Parabéns.

La foto està molt bé, encara que trobo les colors una mica artificials, pero es molt impactant i molt bonica!

This almost looks fake. Nice colors and composition. Way to go.

Heavenly colours, David. the subtle gradations of colour in the sky are great. I like the simplicity of this photo, and your minimalist approach to this gorgeous place.

A wonderful picture that makes you want to go there immediately. Thanks for sharing. I might head there in a few days - let's see if I encounter the same atmosphere ;-)
