A Boat in the Lake

We went to Lake Mapanuepe sometime in March last year.  We were totally captivated then.  A lake that formed during the eruption of a volcano submerging two or three villages!

When we returned this weekend, we were not so captivated as before.  Probably it is because the last time we went there, it was raining and the rain and the subsequent clearing made a big splash in our minds.  Or the fact that when we arrived now it was very sunny and everything was looking flat.  Or probably because this was our second time and there is no more surprise of seeing a place the first time.

Anyway, the lake is still beautiful (not very good for swimming still).  I took several pictures of boats and these three are pictures of one boat.  All of these were shot at the widest setting (12mm or 24mm equivalent).  I miss the ultrawides (10mm on Canon APS-C but ultrawides on m4/3 are very expensive).  The light is really flat so I made changes through Lightroom.  I hope you like them.
