One hour after my last post the landscape began to change with some more light coming for a fading sun
At the FG is well clear the difference between the salt and the lagoon, while at the back began to appear a thin orange line, an effect produced by the sun on the grass surrounding the salt dessert
No reflection because there was some wind

this is very beautiful and absolutely suggestive. The rarity of the natural characteristics and the combination of colours make the scenery and your picture captivating. You chose a magnificent deep foreground for your composition and exalted its tones and textures very effectively. I love how it has collected the light and how it stands out against the smoothness and cold hues of the rest of the frame. The orange strip and the mysterious mountains rising above it are mesmerizing. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great weekend,

stunning landscape, almost monochrome and looking stern but extremely beautiful. The light is amazing, excellent capture.
Have a great Sunday

A fantastic photo, very sharp and clear over the salt-lake under dusk.
The orange thread accross, is a fine dividing imaginary line, towards the ridge on far.
Excelent view on the salt-rocks in foreground.
A fine photojob done, salute.

really an interering one. Like a lot the strip of golden-orange line at middle. Nice mountains at back. Those salt creates nice contrast in foreground. A nicely composed one. Tfs.

Bonjour Bella Maria
Une intéressante profondeur d'image par l'avant-plan rocailleux
Lumières bien équilibrées avec le ciel couvert

Excellent presentation of this beautiful place! Like the way you built the composition based on few different layers of the landscape. The contrast between cold and warm tones make the scene really charming one. Very well done and observed. TFS.

Almost a lunar landscape, the colors are beautiful and so unusual, at least to my eyes! The peaks of the mountains make a beautiful skyline and that strip of orange is indeed most unique. Great scene, and the soft sky works beautifully here.

Un atardecer diferente, sin colores calidos, pero con una luz ideal en este lugar tan maravilloso, ideal POV con esta orilla pedregosa de la laguna, impresionante la linea de montañas al otro lado, el cielo nuboso tambien da unos preciosos tonos en grises.
Es un paisaje fascinante.
Muy buena luminosidad, lo mismo que la nitidez.
Well done. Me encanta.
Pasa un buen domingo.
Saludos muy cordiales.

I like the contrast between the distant coolness and the warmth textured foreground as strong anchor point taking the eye right thru the rather atmospheric vista with fine sense of peacefulness amongst the omnipresent of grey. The streak of reddish orange line adds the extra interest and inter play harmoniously and all combine to make this a calm smooth photo with the decent satisfying colours and the all round painstaking detail. Excellent shot, Congrats.

Hola Maria, excelente fotografía de este interesante y bonito lugar con la luz del atardecer, muy bien compuesta y captada con muy buena calidad, excelente y bonito trabajo estupendamente realizado, mis felicitaciones amiga mia, gracias por compartir.
Buen dia y feliz comienzo de semana.
Un cordial saludo.

Amazing how much different a little change in lighting can make, yes? :) Beautifully simple landscape set along the lagoon, I really like how you've composed this with the solid foreground that breaks apart and leads the eye towards the distinct orange horizon. The soft touch highlighting the rugged and barren rock helps give definition to shape and texture, adding color and warmth. Very interesting remains from the salt water, well arranged to show the effects in a pleasing manner. Have a great week ahead.

Hello Maria - I like the subtlety of this landscape very much; the colours are so delicate and minimal details so attractively captured that the shot is soothing to the eye and calming to the spirit. Beautiful. Warm regards Rosemary

Une 1h30 plus tard, et la lumière est du plus bel effet sur cette incroyable texture en avant plan, une belle vue sur le graphisme des montagnes, merveilleux endroit
Belle soirée a toi

this is a place I would really like to visit someday. One of my top three on my Bucket List.
Beautiful landscape here with interesting foreground and a great mountains on the horizon. I admire your memory remembering details of the trip which happened 3 years ago. Nice atmosphere with the dark clouds.
Very well done,

Un paysage désertique très photogénique. Bien présenté ici avec ce premier plan qui donne de la profondeur à la vue, joli effet avec cette luminosité.
eldancer1 (22413) 2013-08-25 7:43
The place look so desolate! Nicely captured with good lighting and nice details. Wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.
mirosu (10128) 2013-08-27 6:50
I like very much how balanced and elegant this composition looks as you have employed the elements that define the scenery, the colours and the perspectives in an excellent way. We get a great idea of this beautiful tranquil place and of its natural surroundings, depth and clarity are superb. Apart from that, even beyond the physical description, the picture is a delight to look at for its beautiful light and soft colours. Well done. Greetings, Miro

Sorry, I missed a few of your very nice images while I was away. This is a very beautiful image, I like how the salt with some soil content feel like snow on the ground and lake. I like how the chunks of salts feels like small island around the lake leading us in and toward the distant mountain. The cloudy sky adds some melodramatic mood. I like it.
jmdias (49653) 2013-11-05 23:41
muy buena esta vista con línea de color naranja cortando la composicion. el contraste de ella con el paisaje gris es algo cuasi artificial. muy bueno encuadre con una bella vista del paisaje al fondo y los detalles en primer plano. GPC>

curiosando tra le tue vecchie fotografie mi sono imbattuto in questa che mi ha particolarmente colpito per la grandiosità del paesaggio e per il suo aspetto drammatico.
La laguna ha un aspetto spettrale e riflette il colore grigio del cielo.
Colpisce il primo piano il sale che avanza nella laguna probabilmente rendendo difficile la sopravvivenza di ogni forma di vita.
Ottima la nitidezza e straordinaria la luce carla del tramonto che illumina la crosta di sale.
Ciao e buona giornata
