Photo of the Week: Sunset on Lake Peten Itza, Guatemala


Travel Photo of the Week: Sunset on Lake Peten Itza, Guatemala

Some photos take themselves. I was moping around, feeling guilty for staying the night at a $30 eco-hotel and wandered out to the deck to watch the sun set over the lake to find this scene. I had to step about five feet to the right to line up the horse and the reflection and I had the shot. All I had to do was crop it.
