Photographer's Note

Laguna verde and Laguna blanca are connected with a stretch of water. And while Laguna blanca is just a usual lake, Laguna verde has this beautiful green colour which intensity change with the stronger light and stronger wind. There are no flamingos, just surrounding desert. The volcano on the background is the border, behind it is Chile. Even this place seems completely desolate, is not. On the not so distant unpaved road sometimes you can find Chilean big truck hiding to Bolivian altiplano.
I walked away from my Uyuni tour group and enjoyed the silence and the beauty of this place.

I had some problem with colours of those coloured lagunas. When the film was developed colours of the water were almost gone. I tried to give them back with PP (only on the green lake). I m not sure about the green of the laguna, maybe is little bit strong. I done my best. The sky is really darker on that height but here the light effect make it darker in the angle. Only later somebody told me I should take much better film with me because of the difficult sun rays.

Brightness +10, a bit cropped and resized.
