Largest plain of salt on the planet

The Salar de Uyuno in Bolivia is one of the most unusual places in the world and also the site of the largest salt plain on the planet. Located in the southwest of the country, near the Andes, this salar is 3,656 meters above mean sea level and was formed as a result of transformations between several prehistoric lakes.

During the rainy season, the Salar de Uyuni creates a kind of mirror image of the sky, a feature that was used by Japanese photographer Hideki Mizuta to achieve a series of optical illusions with his machine.

“When I first visited the place it was night and the sky was full of stars. I waited in the morning and I can not find words for what I saw very early, “Mizuta explained. “I left the rest of my group and took several pictures in silence. The setting is absolutely breathtaking. It seems like we are in heaven, “concluded the Japanese photographer.
