Treasure Island / The Island / L'île Perdue / La Isla Maravillosa - Version II

Retouched version of the original Island HDRI




In case you're wondering, the title is in three different languages; English, French, and Spanish. Although the titles are not exact translations, but they reflect different ways to see this picture according to the language.


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?

Well, 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.
