Around the world in ten photos: day two

Flamingos feeding

The landscape here is a series of horizontal stripes in blue, green, beige and brown. It creates a calm backdrop for the flamingos as they feed, their pale pink feathers reflected in the still pools of water.

Margaret of From Pyrenees to Pennines and Teresa of My Camera & I have both invited me to join them and other bloggers to post one favourite travel picture a day for ten days without explanation, then each day, nominate someone new to join in on the same terms. I don’t usually post a single photo on my blog; I like to tell a story. But for this challenge I’ll resist that temptation and instead play a guessing game with you all. So, does anyone know where these flamingos are feeding?

And the answer is, the Laguna Chaxa in the Salar de Atacama in Chile, an otherworldly landscape with heavily salinated lagoons in an otherwise dry desert. 

I realise not everyone likes to be nominated for this sort of thing so there’s no pressure to join in. But I wondered, Bert and Rusha of Oh The Places We See, if you’d like to have a go? Don’t feel you have to but do link back to this post if you do – I’d love to see your photos!


Do share your thoughts, I'd love to hear from you! And please include your name in case WP marks you 'anonymous' - thank you
