[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
It was a beautiful sunny day at Lake Atitlan!

The famous Lake Atitlan that Aldous Huxley once called "the most beautiful in the world"
is located in the mountainous Department of Solola, in the Guatemalan highlands. Lake Atitlan is a natural wonder of blue, wind-tossed waters set against a backdrop of three 10,000-foot volcanoes - Toliman, Atitlan and San Pedro - towering on the southern sky. Lago de Atitlán is 320 meters deep, the deepest lake in Central America. The surface of the Lake has a size of about 130 square kms.Their cones are covered with pine and wide leaf forest, are a refuge for endangered plants and animals. Lining the shores of Lake Atitlan are a dozen Indian villages where life and customs have changed little over the centuries.
