Salar de Uyuni

I've only scratched the surface of what I've shot in Bolivia, but thought it would be nice to post the very first scan I've made. This is the largest salt plain in the world - the Salar de Uyuni. salar1

I shot this around 4pm in the afternoon. I was camping on Pescado Island and decided that since sunset was around 6.30, I should head out into the massive salt plain to see where the edge of the island was, so I could determine if I would have a good shooting vantage point facing east (away from the sunset) and of course west (into the sunset). Preparation is everything and I ended up walking a great distance.

I have to admit that I loved doing this. It's not often I get the chance to stand in such a place and enjoy it on my own. I was completely alone for 3 hours,  absorbed in the landscape and the far of distance signs of rain.
