Check out the new retouced version:
HDR of a small, volcanic, tropical island that is inside the
Nicaraguan lake Cocibolca (Known in Maps as "Lake Nicaragua"
but I like the native name better). The lake has over 365 volcanic
islands, like this one. Some even have restaurants and American TV,
cracked of course because I noticed the satellite dish said
"DirecTV" but the reciever was another brand. Besides, I
don't think DirecTV is going to each of these rustic islands to setup
a dish (everything is so poor!). The kind of food: fresh fish from the
very lake. Really fun. Did you know that you can eat a full BIG plate
of food at restaurants for only $2 ? Thats cheap! At the center of
the island there is a small island called "Ometepe" with 2
volcanos in it. I hear the scenery is great there too but the journey
was about 8 hours on a boat and I didn't have much time, actually, the
day after that day was my last day and there was so much stuff to do.
Wikipedia says that the lake has over 400+ but I got my information from Native Nicaraguan Tour guides. Mhhh, who's to trust?
This image has very little modifications by the way, you can get these kind of colours in an HDR just when its about to become a sunset. I was amazed by all of the beautiful scenery! I don't really encourage excessive travel but you should get out of that town of yours every once in a while.
