Have you ever been on another planet ?
Well, this is where I thought I was when I took this picture on the Chilean altiplano, North of Chile in the Atacama region. Imagine a pure mineral place with no apparent life and absolute silence, a colorful place with quiet salt lakes and active volcanoes, a place where the sky seems to touch the ground, where the rare oxygen is the only reminder that you are not on IO, one of Jupiter's Moon. ... The beauty of this starry landscape definitively makes you forget the cold and the 5000m altitude.
