Well have fun! I'm looking forward to your photos upon your return!
Don't you just love saying Lake Titicaca. ha ha I love that word..it's right up there with Wallawalla, Washington.
What a beautiful shot with the mountains in the background. You can tell much from the thumbnail so when I clicked, I actually did one of those sharp intakes of air - "WOW"

awesome, really breath taking. Those peaks look almost superimposed. Have a safe and productive journey my friend, i, like everyone else, will be waiting eagerly for what you bring back to show us.
You don't say what part of Tibet you're going to, but if your able to, i'd love to see a shot of Nanga Parbat or Annapurna...

A beautiful and majestic range of mountains. The sun shining softly onto the peaks show that they are massive in size. The colours here are so soft, I can see why ventured out on deck to capture this.

The view of the lake and the mountains is truly grand, James. This picture taken 18 years ago looks fresh and new. The scanning is faultless.
All the best for your trip to Tibet.
you do get around!!!
This is a really fascinating lake.
I watched a documentary on it a while back and it explains about all the animals that are unique to the lake like the Titicaca Frog.
A beautiful capture.
What camera did you use?

Awesome scene here and superbly portrayed. The shape of the mountains and the light and shadow areas bring out the beauty of the place and the sheen on the waters the briiliant effect. No doubt this is a special place and you are lucky to be there seeing it with your own eyes. Just fantastic. Excellent POV and superbly composed and presented. Kudos.
Hope you have a good time in Cina and bring back lovely memories freezed in your camera. Bon Voyage!

It´s a wonderfulllll image!!!! I love the enourmous mountains behind the Tititcaca, I´ve never imagined such rock walls, they have a marvelous shape, looks like from a fairy tail or something else. Very nice blue tones and the composition is very likeable. Complete and useful note. Best regards

Gee...do you spend more time on you work or on making travel arrangements?? : ) You must be terribly good at it by now. This is an amazing shot. I didn't realize the mountains were so rugged there. Thanks for sharing it. I'm glad you braved the elements to get it!

What a fabulous rock. I think what I like most about this shot is the way you've captured the light, on the rock and on the water. This has set up excellent texturing with some great shadow play in those hills. The snow on the mountains is just a bonus to this giving them an almost alpine look. The transition to the sky is a soft one, making the hills seem even larger maybe than they are.

The vision of the high mountains of the Andes is impressive. I was there 16 years ago and these "nevados" were the first andean mountains that I knew. A really unforgeteable landscape. Be lucky in your wonderful trip to Tibet... I have never been there but the mountains must be spectacular. Best wishes James.
