Photographer's Note

This pretty strange photo is taken in Bolivias salar de uyuni. I didn't do any digital editing on the background, how is that possible?

Well, this bolivian family is taking a break for lunch in the middle of the largest salt desert on earth. Covering an area of 4,680 square miles (12,121 sq km), the Salar is set at an elevation of 11,970ft (3,650m) and filled with an estimated 10 billion tons of salt. At some places people armed with picks and shovels harvest the salt from the lake and in the middle of the lake there is a cactus island and close to that a small hotel entirely made of salt.

The only digital enhancement I did was to lighten up the people inside the car and improve the overall lightning/brightness.
