|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|You are looking at Lake Titicaca (as seen from the Isla del Sol), the largest lake in South America (8372 kmē) and, at 3812 m above sea level, the highest commercially navigable lake in the world. The snow-capped Bolivian Andes tower in the background, albeit overly large due to the 18x optical zoom.|
The Bolivian Naval Force uses the lake to carry out naval exercises, maintaining an active navy despite being landlocked! I wonder what the Austrians and Swiss think of that?!
