Bolivia - Uyuni by lux69aeterna Bolivia - Uyuni by lux69aeterna
The "Salar de Uyuni" in Bolivia is the largest salt flat in the world at a height of approximately 3600m and a surface of 10 582 km2. As a result of the drying out of lakes that had high concentrations of salt, the salar was formed. It has a thick crust of salt, but underneath there is still salty water. It is located in the Bolivian altiplano, which is a high plateau formed by the uplift of the Andres mountain range. The area is protected and is a major breeding ground for three species of flamingos as the plateau contains various fresh and saltwater lakes. 

As well as being a magic spot for nature photography, it is a famous spot for "playing around" with people and objects as the white salt ground gives a perfect background. The two friends posing behind are Daniel Neuf and Katharina Hoetzel.

Nikon D800, Nikkor 24-70mm, B+W UV Filter.

I would photoshop the shadows to work in tandem with yours...that would mess with people, LOL!

I understand your point of view Thomas, but the point was to work with a panorama... If i'd cut mine a but, it would maybe still work... But i guess i'll just leave it the natural way...
