Photographer's Note

another view on lagoon limpiopungo in cotopaxi national park: this time across the whole lagoon rather than one corner of it as i showed in the shot with the reddish water-grass. in the far background - the stratovolcanoe cotopaxi himself. a bit camera shy, wrapping himself in clouds as usual in december in these highlands (the lagoon is about 3000 meters above the sea level). for scale: the little dots on the right are cars approaching the lagoon, which happens to be the first attraction as people enter the park through the main entrance. by the way, it took us several hours to go around the whole lagoon.

happy weekend to everyone! :)

ps. i know, some might say, a circular polarizer would have helped me here to tame the reflections off the water. in this case, i actually like the silvery field of dribbly reflections countering the white-grayish clouds in the sky.
