Phantom Ship Island

Crater Lake National Park, Oregon

Visitors to Crater Lake National Park in Oregon are taken with the lake's beautiful blue water,  so blue because there is hardly anything else in it. The water is some of the purest that you will find anywhere in the world. The next thing that you notice in the lake is the massive Wizard Island that lies on the western side of the lake. One of the things that gets a little lost in this broad landscape is this smaller island on the eastern side of the lake. Known as Phantom Ship Island (aka Pirate Ship Island), it rises 170 feet above the water level and is 500 feet long and 200 feet wide. It got it's name because it resembles a ghost ship, particularly in foggy conditions. 

I decided to zoom in to take a photo of the island to isolate it from its massive surroundings, and also to accentuate the blue of the water.
