Photographer's Note

I think the south western region of Bolivia, also called South Lipez desert, is one of the most beautiful places in the world. At least the world which I have seen. This place is called Laguna de Polque, and it is a lake at about 4500 meters above sea level, near the Laguna Verde, close to the chilean border.
The lake, as all the lakes in this volcanic area, is filled with salt, algae and other minerals. In addition here there are some hot streams, which create small "rivers" in the lake, melting the salt locally.
This place belongs to a geothermal area, with geysers and hot springs.

This picture was taken at 8 am, while waiting the trip crew to prepare breakfast.
It is a scan from Velvia 50, and it was taken with a Nikon F70 + Nikkor 28-70.
