Photographer's Note

couple of days ago I posted a photo of the highland horse climbing its way home, and today the people follow.

we met these three women near the Quilotoa lagoon, which is the highlight of about 200km-long Quilotoa loop - a mixture of dirt and paved mountain roads that lead through some of the most beautiful areas of Ecuador. Quilotoa lagoon itself 3 kilometres (2 mi) wide water-filled caldera that was formed by the collapse of a volcano following a catastrophic eruption about 800 years ago. the caldera has since accumulated a 250 m (820 ft) deep crater lake, which has a greenish color as a result of dissolved minerals.

Kristaps has created a separate theme for the Quilotoa loop, and among the photos of the theme there is this close-up of the girl in the blue poncho.

I still haven't learned how to save EXIF data while "saving for web", so I'll just have to write it down: ISO 200, 10mm focal length, spot metering mode, auto white balance. and no frame for a change.
