Ojos del Salar
Los Ojos del Salar, in northern Chile’s Atacama Desert. I tried, but was able to learn pretty much nothing about the origin of these two small round natural lagoons situated just steps apart in the dry expanse of the desert. I did learn a couple things about them on my visit, however: They’re deep enough to dive into from the edge without hitting bottom and the water is quite refreshing (cold, really) on a hot summer day. Almost as refreshing as the obligatory sunset Pisco Sour that followed.
This was another photo that I had featured in last weekend’s Through the Lens Show in Oakland. I still have one of this image available as a 12″x18″ metal print for $200. Other sizes and materials available, please contact me for more details and I’d be happy to help find a way to put this on your wall. 🙂
