Laguna Miscanti – Atacama desert, Chile
This picture has been taken at the laguna Miscanti. Located at 4200m of elevation it is a stunningly beautiful lagune surrounded by MiÃ±iques and Cerro Miscanti volcanoes. It is also during the summer one of the largest flamingos reserve of the area. During the winter the laguna (however very salty) gets fully frozen with average temperature of -30 Celsius. Atacama desert is a rough place indeed.
