Right before Sunset, the backlit terrain of Valle da la Luna near San Pedro de Atacama looks particularly otherworldly.
This one was taken as a panorama of 3 pictures.
Laguna Lejía is a beautiful lake high in the Atacama Plateau. It is surrounded by several volcanoes, namely Chiliques, Lascar, Aguas Calientes and Acamarachi.
Photo tips: The salt deposits all around the lake make an interesting foreground.
Getting there: Expect about 1-2 hours drive from San Pedro de Atacama, the later part on a rough bumpy track that doesn't request any special 4x4 driving skills though.
Early morning above Salar de Tara, patches of the grass are backlighted by raising Sun, thousands of flamingos in the lake. Anything more to ask for? ;-)
After a very windy day and night, this peaceful morning was a welcomed change. Salar de Tara is a beautiful location and watching flamingoes in the salar from a vantage point above was an unforgettable experience.
