Atacama Desert, Chile. More salt evident than usual due to the leaching of salt after the flood waters evaporated.

THANK YOU FOR SHARING YOUR WORK IN THE CHILE LINDO GROUP
Great lighting (Sunset is such a gorgeous time of day) and that covering of snow makes this pictures really interesting. Gorgeous capture!
HI Nicole, glad you like the photo – it’s actually white salt rather than snow. It has leached to the surface from evaporating flood waters in the driest desert in the world :-). A magical time to be in the Atacama.
Wow! That’s interesting…I never knew that. Very cool. And it does look magical.
