    Although it looks like a huge frozen lake this is actually the largest salt lake (10.500 km2) in the world, Salar de Uyuni, in Boliva. I took this picture waiting for sunset and almost forgot to press the trigger while enjoying this ultimate moment of silence.

    Wow. This is so beautiful. I agree with Your Shot photographer Luca Feliziani, who commented: "Stunning color! It is simply a fantastic shot! Magic place in a magic moment." I wish I was there was waiting for the sunset and enjoying what must have been a special experience of quiet, instead of sitting in an office building, typing on my laptop, and listening to music through my headphones to eliminate the chatter of my co-workers so I can focus...
