Atacama Desert Panoramas

The Atacama Desert is the world's driest desert. And its most famous town, San Pedro de Atacama, could easily be retitled to 'San Polvo de Atacama' as the place really is fairly dusty.

The landscape here is simply stunning: lagoons, salt lakes, geysers, volcanoes... really, a landscape photographer's dream. And thanks to my trusted motorcycle, I was able to visit these places individually, rather than the crowded & pricey tourist tours.

I don't think that 'normal' pictures do this amazing place justice, so I decided to upload quite a number of panoramas to the panorama section (Gallery 3), which you can see here. Hope you like the images.
