We went on vacations to Coihuin. The colors in Chiloé used to be on a grey tint as it was constantly raining before the climate changed.
During our stay we had blue sky, as it did not rain during the entire 14 days. On a previous occasion I had searched for small waterfalls but located none. Near the place we were staying I only found this lake.

Was using a Mamiya camera that my friend Jaime had borrowed and took color images. I had time to work for myself, the wind only appeared an hour later.
I was not pleased how the color images came out and filed them. These are digital converted B&W images that gives the sense of tranquility, where I show Lago Coihuin at its best.
