Our local guide Oswaldo gave us a safety briefing once we were on our boat and then we were allowed to head upstairs to check out the scenery on our 1.5 (ish) hour boat ride to Taquille Island.
Lake Titicaca is the highest navigable lake in the world. It is a huge lake that borders on Peru and Bolivia. The boats travel very slow and for the most part, the waves are pretty small, but I still took a couple of gravol just to be safe AND took in as much fresh air from the top of the boat as possible.
I spent quite a bit of time on the boat ride answering photography questions and giving individual tutorials about histograms, apertures, shutter speed and iso. It was a great time for Peru Through the lens participants to get a little individual photo attention, along with being able to shoot and then show me the photo for feedback. For those who took this opportunity, I think it made a big difference in their shooting for the remainder of the trip.
Here are a few of my favorite photos from the Lake Titicaca boat trip.
