on Sunday everybody needs some calm and tranquility, and I hope this view from the hills of Isla Taquile overlooking Lago Titicaca will help to find that ("hills" is only right if you measure how high we were from the surface of the lake, which itself is 3,811 m (12,500 ft) above sea level).
it was just an hour before we had to leave the Island of Taquile and go back to Puno, and on the next day travel from Puno to Lima for the last day of our Peru trip. I guess I was feeling quite melancholic, and somehow the two tiny boats against the vast expanse of the lake and textures of the water fit my mood.
RAW, ISO 200, 200mm focal lenght, spot metering.

A very minimalistic picture - on the thumbnail, I thought it was birds! - but a really good pattern with the waves following the 2 boats!

Very simple, even minimalist but a splendid graphism
Images do not have to be sophisticated to be beautiful
Have a nice WE

I like the graphism of this view, the simplicity of the composition sharing well the geometric patterns and hence its efficiency.

minimalism at its best! A few elements, appropriately placed, some textures, a few lines....great, I love it!

Unique image Kristine. I like it shows the expanse of the ocean.
pasternak (15181) 2011-03-04 6:57
Nice M (or is it a reversed W?) I don't know if I like the decentralization here, maybe aligning the vertical axes of the M and of the frame would work better.
Waylim (25368) 2011-03-04 10:46
This is very Barbara'ish.
And yes, this image really evoke sense of calm and peacefulness. Aaah, I can take in a long deep breath. Except up there, there is really not much air. This takes me back to the wonderful 3 day I spent there. Couple night we stay with the locals in different islands.
Fantastic quality, the wide open view, minimalist compo really works well here for the mood. What a fantastic place, feel like an ocean than a lake.

I remember going there and the views of these deep blue water I was impressed with too. Love the simplicity of this one with just the two white dots of the boats and their trails breaking the waters calmness. It really becomes almost abstract.

immagine che denota senso per l'inquadratura con un buon taglio.
Grafismo dato dalla scia delle imbarcazioni.
patdeph (35748) 2011-03-08 3:40

always a pleasure to re visit your gallery, because there is often a beauty waiting for the viewer, such as this one.
love the expanse, the feeling of the water going on and on for infinity in all 4 directions.
the double V is fantastic.

A strong minimal composition. The lines and texture surely attracts and caught my attention. Ingenious! Well composed and beautifully presented! I have nothing more to say! Great photographic eye!
