Post 4 – Lake Titicaca

Lake Titicaca, the highest navigable body of water in the world, holds many surprises for the photographer. The water was delightful to kayak – we launched from a reed island and paddled in a calm area, getting close to the reeds and birds.  The islands we visited gave us great photographic opportunities of the cultures – different on each island.
