This time of the year, the huge surface of salt dries in geometrical patterns. Distances are hard to tell in this immenseness (over 10 000 sqare km) - with some camera tricks the salt lake works as a huge shrinking machine. We spend two half days having fun with my camera in the white middle of nowhere.
There are severeal cacti-covered islands in this vasteness
As the sun sets the light changes until our shadows seem to touch the horizon. A last intense glow lingers above, yellow turns into orange, green and deep blue. Then the milkyway stretches above our heads, stars reaching from horizon to horizon. An amazing place to be!
