Photographer's Note

I will post some photos following the hour it were taken

About Cejar Lagoon
At about 30 km approx. from San Pedro de Atacama is Cejar Lagoon, a salt lake in the middle of the dessert, surrounded by yellow grasslands and the Andes Mountains
The most beautiful, the multitude of colors that were appearing, changing from minute to minute at sunset, along with the fantastic reflection in the lake of salt

My visit
There was not sun when we arrived, so few reflections, the driver began to prepare drinks (pisco souer) and told us not to worried, it was winter and he was sure that a great spectacle was going to appear at sunset

From Wikipedia

The salt flat encompasses 3,000 km2 (1,200 sq. mi), is about 100 km (62 mi) long and 80 km (50 mi) wide, which makes it the third largest in the world, after Salar de Uyuni in Bolivia (10,582 km2 (4,086 sq. mi)) and Salinas Grandes in Argentina (6,000 km2 (2,300 sq. mi)) Its average elevation is about 2,300 m above sea level
