Salt piles and crystals on the Uyuni Salt Flats of Bolivia 5
Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia - 23 May 2018 The Uyuni Salt Flats of Bolivia are one of the great natural wonders of the planet. Covering over 10, 000 square kilometres, this blinding ocean of salt is the largest in the world; at over 3600m elevation, it is also amongst the highest. The entire area has a surreal quality of natural wonder and beauty. Magnificent!
