[Atardecer Lake]

Description:

Postcard photograph of Patzcuaro Lake, also known as Atardecer Lake in Guadalajara, Mexico. The photograph is cast in relief from the setting sun disappearing behind a line of mountains that stretch across the photograph. Several clouds filter sunlight onto to the lake in an irregular pattern. A dock is just visible to the right of the photograph, slightly below where the mountain line meets the lake waters. A hand-written inscription on the front of the postcard reads "Atardecer Lago de Patzcuaro No. 19. A letter to Federica Abreu is addressed on the back.
