When you’re waiting for a bus, it’s called a bus stop. When you’re waiting for a boat, it must be called a boat stop, no? This was taken halfway between Bariloche in Argentina and Puerto Varas in Chile. It is a rather impressive journey, with tall mountains on either side. You can do a similar route by bus, but I thought I’d spoil myself a little and go for the softer, more luxurious option of a boat journey (with a couple of short bus rides to¬†connect the lakes).

Technically, there isn’t much that makes this shot difficult. Sometimes it’s good just to shoot what you see and let the shot take care of itself. A casual observer, with camera, sitting on the dock of the… lake, that’s me!
