The Milky Way Mirrored On Uyuni Salt Flat

Russian photographer Daniel Kordan traveled to Uyuni salt flat in Bolivia to capture the starry sky.

Daniel chose Altiplano, a region of west-central South America, as it is an area well known for its absolute darkness, rising 12,300 feet (3.750 meters) above sea level. And by darkness I mean no light pollution. He went prepared with a special astrophotography camera that can better capture the colors found in the sky.

Thanks to the flooded salt flat of Uyuni, he managed to capture the Milky Way reflected onto the earth’s surface.

Salar de Uyuni is the world’s largest salt flat, a place everyone with a photo camera would love to visit one day.

As we love to satisfy your curiosity, Daniel used a Nikon D810A, a DSLR camera optimized for astrophotography and a Nikkor AF-S 14-24mm f/2.8G ED lens.
