This is my closing view after my 4 days Santa Cruz Trek Since we started the trekking from Cashapampa ( the other side of the pass )
Santa Cruz trek is about 3 hours from Huaraz, Peru.
If you start your Santa Cruz Trek from Vaquiera then this is would be your first view before you reach the pass at 4760M( I will try to upload the route and the pass in the next couple of days )
I could imagine, before the road construction you can only see this lake by trekking/walking but now it's very easy to reach beautiful lake during the day.

that's incredible, in my previous criticism I said to you that I want a new your photo, and here is! And what a spectacular scenery, this is absolutely superb, the colors and the light are splendid, and the quality is really excellent. My best congratulations.

Splendid shot - I particularly like your framing and colour and light management.
The sharpness is also spot on.
Thank you for sharing

I have learned to be more civilized, I'm not jealous, but envious of you being here, and I won't beat you up again. Otherwise you won't show me any more new photo. This one is even nicer, the sky is clearer, the clarity is really good, love the intense color laguna in the high mountain, so rich with mineral. The texture of the rock is also really good.
So are you going to China and also coming to the U.S.? Wow, you sure travel alot. I feel like beating you up again, you know.

Fantastic colours and contrasts between the lake and the sky, and also between the foreground and the distant hillsides. Your trekks may be exhausting but they certainly take you to fantastic places.

Hello Artesia ,
Wow ! What a gorgeous view ! The color of the water is fantastic . It reminds me the famous "Lac de Moiry" in Switzerlan , that we often see on TE .
Great composition, and superb sharpness .

Have a good weekend,
