Another image from the wonderful Salt Flats in Northern Argentina - The scenery is out of this World - I believe walking on the salt bare footed is extremely good for your feet - we witnessed a few people enjoying this experience... we were en-route to another destination & did not have a lot of time to spend at this stop... Please enjoy.

What a fantastic landscape! I wonder at what altitude this salt plain is located. This image reminds me pictures of Uyuni, Bolivia, that have been posted on TE.
You have captured a wonderful and impressive sky.
Best regards, Paul

The landscape is quite fantastic and the sky as well. An image well composed using the rule of thirds. Very good technical realisation as well. Thanks for sharing. Have a pleasant Sunday.

The light is a key of your stunning post! Love the visual effect created here supported by the fantastic saturation and color contrast. Lovely pic!

J'aime beaucoup l'impression d'immensité qui se dégage de cette image. J'aime le couleur du ciel en contraste avec le superbe bleu du ciel. Le contre jour est parfaitement contrôlé par l'épaisseur des nuages.

a very effective simple composition and a picture of great fascination and remarkable quality. I love the colours and the atmosphere, the sense of immensity on the earth and in the sky. You've managed the light very skillfully and captured some wonderful features like its play through the clouds and the subtle shadows in the background. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely week,

Belle image. pas de premier plan, mais cela ne gène pas , cela renforce ici le vide de l'endroit.

What an incredible mood you captured here. Not only the salt flat, which is of course amazing, but the sky and how its lit is really fantastic. This seems like a painting to me, it is really such a unique and otherworldly scene. Really nicely done. Thanks for sharing.
All the best

un cielo fantastico occupa la gran parte dell'immagine e crea una profondità incredibile.
Molto bella la luce.

Endless DOF Dawn, and yet there is someone walking there, scaling the whole wide space on image.
Beautiful in it's strange way, unique and flat. Clouds overhead added wondeful tone to picture well taken.
photographer_sg (4414) 2013-02-11 8:27
The sky on the flat landscape with the clouds and the blue hills in the background is fantastic. Beautiful colours and clarity. Wonderful pictures in your gallery. Thanks for sharing.
josepmarin (58359) 2013-02-11 9:36
a good framing with an efficient structure in thirds, where you give an important space to the sky and its wonderful photogenic clouds, which provide a great visual power at this natural scene of the infinite salt plains.
A beautiful light and a great contrast between white and blue tones.

This is an extraordinary landscape, under a sky no less beautiful. The appreciate the excellent quality and the depth of the picture. Bravo.
Have a nice day
SnapRJW (31629) 2013-02-13 21:15
Hello Dawn - I love this kind of wide open landscape; it reminds me so much of the Etosha Pan here in Namibia, so other-worldly and a huge contrast to verdant green landscapes. You were fortunate to see the pan under such a superb sky which highlights the vastness of the landscape. Super shot. Warm regards rosemary
chrisvek (7001) 2013-02-14 16:04

eldancer1 (36343) 2013-02-15 7:52
Awesome panoramic view of this salt lake and looking at the person it makes you realize how small we really are in comparison to the whole world. Good pov and dof with sharp details. Wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.
jhm (155264) 2013-02-15 8:32

Quel impression d'immensité et le mystère angoissant qui se dégagent sur ta photo! Vraiment une violente déchirure dans les teintes du ciel... en tout cas, très bien vu.
Compliments et amitiés,

Hola dear Dawn
Another shot of these magnificent salt pans. They truly are magnificent, I'm obsessed with them. The ones in Sicily are magnificent and were the highlight of my tripe. Beautiful blue tones, fantastic clouds and wonderful textures. Nice work, thanks for sharing.
Have a lovely weekend

You are presenting na excellent tranquil desert landscape in perfect light and nice colors. The sky with the clouds hanging above the flat land is terrific. Brilliant photo.
jacquest (18927) 2013-02-17 4:52
This is a nice backlight composition with this superb sky and the endless distance to the mountains which creates deepness. The light is very well managed and makes this composition an eye catcher.

You show the picture the great salt lake, but the main theme is amazing clouds in the sky. Somewhere in the distance I see a lonely human figure. A picture really is impressive.

Cheerio , God Bless you !
adores (45877) 2013-03-31 16:45
Seems endless! The sense of space and loneliness is amazing here! And it seems there's someone enjoying the scenery alone there:)! I like the composition with the beautiful sky. The sunlight on the clouds really make the difference!
Just a little busy these last days, but hope to spend more time here the next few days:)! Have a really Happy Easter!
Robert1969 (7160) 2013-04-09 23:06
TE is not only a site to enjoy from each other
pictures, it's also educational, because I did
not know that Argentina has salt fields.
I like the open spaces in the picture (good
composition) that emphasize extra the majesty
of this landscape. The sky fits very well.
adidas5nb (5743) 2013-04-09 23:25
thats a stunner. great great image.really like the how small the man looks,giving an idea of the vastness of the place...fantastic colors.
kato (11630) 2013-08-03 5:35
I had a strong impression to this place, so it's interesting to see the vast salt flats with white. It's the wonderful phenomenon which nature made. It's balanced beautfully with blue sky, too. And, the mountain range with blurred image in the distance draws out an additional good atmosphere in this image as well as summer clouds in the sky.
