Kids on Lago de Atitlan, Guatemala

The sun rises early in Guatemala, even when one is chilling out on a gorgeous lake surrounded by three volcanoes. Lago de Atitlan is a mile high (in altitude) but often feels like a different world.

 

Anyways, despite the hardship involved, I dragged myself out of bed to take some photos of sunrise. Didn't quite make it this day, but had a good time chatting with a couple of local kids from the village of Jaibalito. They were fishing from the dock and were in high spirits.

 

PS Confessions:

The horizon was way off. Straightened in Aperture. Also brightened up the older kid's face a bit.
