Photographer's Note

Between two frontiers.

According to a Bolivian map of Bolivia, this should be Quisi Quisini mountain, and according to a map of Peru (that happens to include a little of northern Chile), this is Chungara Lake. The mountain is in Bolivia and the lake in Chile. This place is in Chile, some meters after crossing the Bolivia-Chile border at 4600m above sea level in the highway Arica-La Paz, 70km east of Putre.
The mountain is being reflected on a thin film of ice on the lake, not on the (liquid) water itself.
A very cold place.
Shot with Agfa-something ISO 100 slide film.

Adjusted a little in PS, desaturated blue and cyan a little, applied Gaussian blur to the sky and unsharp masking to the rest.

PS. This is also the first picture depicted on this web page. Just as reference.
