Spirit Of Condor Landed...Sunset On Titicaca Lake

Lake Titicaca is the world's highest lake navigable to large vessels, lying at 12,500 feet (3,810 m) above sea level in the Andes Mountains of South America, astride the border between Peru to the west and Bolivia to the east. Titicaca is the second largest lake of South America (after Maracaibo). The remnants of an ancient people, the Uru, still live on floating mats of dried totora (a reedlike papyrus that grows in dense brakes in the marshy shallows) on floatings islands of Uro which are about 17. From the totora, the Uru and other lake dwellers make their famed balsas--boats fashioned of bundles of dried reeds lashed together that resemble the crescent-shaped papyrus craft pictured on ancient Egyptian monuments.

Hi! I just discovered your really beautiful Titicaca Lake picture while looking for an appropriate picture for a post I'm preparing on the history of condors in Peru. I request your permission for using a low-res version in a post giving you and this site the entire credit of course. It is just that this is the perfect picture I found for such a criature. I might publish that post this weekend and I'd like to have your permission. Great work!

Very nice, but not so nice as Ladozhskoe lake (patriotten obyknovennien). Titi-what? Caca? Cool! :) (russians will understand) In small resolution - looks like bird, right. Most mistique picture for me.
