    This trip was our farewell to South America after living in Brazil for 6 years. We spent the night close to the salar de Uyuni in order to arrive early in the morning and take pictures before sunrise. The landscape and the light were even more incredible that I had imagined. There was a moment when -as hard as it may sound for a photographer- I stopped taking pictures. I just stood there to Be and breathe and I started walking as if it was the beginning of a long walk into the immensity.

    The sheer expanse of space coupled with beautiful light makes this an EPIC photograph. I particularly like the casual posture of the figure walking off into the vast wilderness. It's going to be a really really long walk, isn't it? Great frame!
