Photographer's Note

Laguna Hedionda, on the way to other coloured lagunas. This one has no special colour but there you can find pink flamingos. I was surprised because before start planning my Bolivian trip I thought flamingos live only in warm areas. I was wrong, here at this time of year temperature can easily drop far below 0°C. There are so many of them, filtering the water (looking for food), flying around and producing a characteristic noise. Amazing scenery. For me, this part of Bolivia (lagunas and salar) was the most beautiful part. I jumped in a 4 day tour and met wonderful people. The weather was prefect. I had everything needed to enjoy this fascinating place. White colour on the mountain is snow, white colour around the laguna is borax.
