This shot was taken at 4400m of altitude on the way up to some Geysers del Tatio, where we camped at 4700m and watched the sunrise whilst swimming in 40C thermal baths with an outside temperature of -15

The world's biggest copper mine. All we wanted to do was see the 'hole', but alas we had to join a tourist group and do a 4 hour tour.

Interesting rock formations in Moon Valley. Naturally occurring and completely anomalous - everything else around them is completely flat.

Yes, I know, there are a lot of pictures of Valle de La Luna, but it's a place with a lot of photographic opportunities!

En route to moon valley where we definitely didn't camp for the night.... Needless to say, I'm sure sunrise would have been amazing if one did indeed camp there...

Whilst drinking a beer watching the sunset in an industrial town just north of Antofogasta, we saw two guys approach. It transpired that they were living in a tent on the beach 100m below, and invited us to harvest seaweed and go fishing with them.

After having dug the car out of the mud, we decided to go on a little trek into the salt flat that almost claimed us victims. The right of this picture is Ojos de Salado - the mountain we were en route to climb, and the highest active volcano in the world at 6893m.

With no mobile phone reception, only 3 days of food and water, and around 250kms to the nearest "town", I think the general consensus was "Well, if we do die here, at least it's beautiful"! Luckily after digging and pushing from 1pm to 11pm, then from 7am to 5pm we got out on day 2.

The view from the tent. We pitched at the top of a mountain (2700m) near El Salvador, where our things were stolen. The view was incredible, but unluckily our tent was prised from our hands the next day.

To me, photography is the simultaneous recognition, in a fraction of a second, of the significance of an event.
