Wizard Island, Crater Lake, Oregon, USA by Roy Goldsberry

One of the places that I had long wanted to visit was Crater Lake, so in 2014 we took a two week trip to Oregon. Crater Lake was formed just under 8000 years ago by the collapse of the volcano Mount Mazama. It is the deepest lake in the US at 594 m. The water of the lake is the darkest blue that I have seen anywhere. Sometime after the caldera was created, additional volcanic activity built the small cinder cone that became Wizard Island. This is one of those shots, taken at 130mm, closing in on Wizard Island, surrounded by that deep blue water.
