The world’s largest salt flat at 10,582 sq kilometers (elevation of 3,656 meters above sea level) is located near the crest of the Andes. In July last year, an abundance of snow from the Andes melted down and covered this stunning expansive area to become a massive surreal lake replacing the barren parched wasteland.

Photographer: Nilla Palmer (Brisbane, Australia) Registered
Nilla Palmer’s natural desire to travel and photograph many parts of the world started 27 years ago. Although her photography addiction first started with a 110mm film camera, then progressing to 35mm cameras, a photography course, which included B&W darkroom techniques, and recently digital cameras. Nilla captures whatever strikes her at a precise moment but strives for images that will etch in people’s minds. Nilla’s intent is to reveal a story through her images for an audience, which she hopes inspires and encourages people to visit far off lands. She invites everyone to enjoy her gallery and feel free to contact her with any comments.
