The burning of the Salar de Uyuni 2 sent on March 15, 2017 (14:56) by Gianluca Tomarchio Vasta. 4 comments, 386 views.

at 70mm, 1/250 f/8.0, ISO 400, hand held.

Dopo parecchi chilometri, nel bianco, ci cominciamo a rendere conto delle dimensioni effettive. Ben 84km dove le due sponde (ha un senso chiamarle così) sono più vicine, mentre la massima ampiezza arriva a 140km circa. Alcune montagne che vediamo in fondo, e che sembrano la fine del Salar in quella direzione, costituiscono invece una grossa isola in mezzo. La piatta distesa bianca, divisa in milioni di poligoni irregolari dai cui contorni evapora l'acqua per lasciare il posto al sale, si estende in tutte le direzioni. Già così, con la sola luce dell'aurora, si ha la consapevolezza di un luogo unico al mondo. Ma non è finita. Appena una punta di sole infrange l'orizzonte, tutto si incendia, dalle lontane montagne e vulcani che a poco a poco si illuminano di rosso, ai contorni salini dei poligoni di sale. La memoria cerca inutilmente di trovare similitudini. Mi sono allontanato parecchio dal gruppo e dall'auto. Nessun suono familiare riesce a raggiungermi. Il freddo penetra gli abiti impietoso. Lo spettacolo ha un inatteso effetto fortemente straniante. Devo documentare quanto sto vivendo da solitario esploratore, su un pianeta alieno.

Remarkable, it seems that the bait cracks fire

Well, the Salar is at 3700 meters.
It is not a sunset, but a sunrise.
I like more the other photos I made that is less obvious than this. The same gallery.
They are not cracks, but evaporation increases. In the other picture I described it all better.

Thank you all.
Gianluca.
