This breathtaking, jaw-dropping photo was submitted by Lucy from Around the World.
It shows Laguna Miniques, a high plain (altiplano) lake in the Atacama region in northern Chile. Laguna Miniques is located in the south-east of the city San Pedro de Atacama.
The lake is part of the Los Flamencos National Reserve.
Laguna Miniques is nestled at the foot of Cerro (Volcano) Miniques, at an altitude of about 4000 metres above sea level. It is surrounded by a golden scrub layer and salt deposits.

Lucy says about her blog Around the World
My blog is fairly new but features photos from all my travels past & present & I’ve also found it useful for keeping up with family while I’m away.
Lucy also loves cooking and baking, and trying the different cuisines in each country is part of her travel philosophy.
