Behind the lens: Castro, a city on Chiloe Island, Chile, has a unique neighborhood of colorful homes built on stilts that protect them from flooding due to tidal fluctuations. This photo was taken on a Seabourn cruise from Valparaiso, Chile, around Cape Horn to Buenos Aires, Argentina, in late 2012.
