WEDNESDAY WANDERLUST: REFLECTIONS FROM UYUNI
By Paul Strubell of Dirt Orcas – 12/21/16
This weeks edition of Wednesday Wanderlust takes us to Bolivia. Specifically the salt flat of Uyuni.
It cries out to the wolf in all of us – to look above and howl a little bit. Reconnecting with the stars gives you sense of place and purpose and it also might score you a few world class time night sky shots.
Reflections from Uyuni is a Time-lapse short film that shows the intrinsic beauty of the salt flat of Uyuni and the province of Potosí in Bolivia.
The reflections produced by the water flooding the area in the rainy season, are the main protagonist of Enrique Pacheco´s camera, who invites us to dream with impossible images from another world, where the sky meets the earth forming an infinite mirage.
The salt flat of Uyuni with over 10,000km2 is the largest in the world. It is located in the province of Potosi, Bolivia, near the Andes, at an altitude of 3.656m.
The Salar serves as a transport route through the Altiplano of Bolivia, but tourism has an increasingly more important role in the area.
