Hi James , For someone who has stayed in England most of his life your pictures shows me parts of the would i should never see and often never heard of. I see a few dry looking grasses but not much plant life. You have taken a good compostion. From your POV we can see the mountains in the BG . The deep blue of the sky giving the colour. Well taken TFS.
How are you!
You have this lagoon hung up and salted. Nicely photographed as well.
Question: I know you've been there; the Etosha pan in Namibia. Is this the same process as described in your note? 'Cause it's not a lake and its altitude can't be compared with this lagoon's altitude?
Well done and greetings,

Wonderful landscape in a fantastic composition. The colours in the salt lake, mountains and sky are very beautiful. Great clarity. Beautiful DOF and different patterns in the photo.

Hello James! Excellent landscape. Good POV and capture. Very good colours and saturation. Wonderful shot. Good luck!
Very interesting presentation and beautiful picture. The place really look quite dead.
By the way I'm wondering what temperature was when you were takin the picture?
Good composition and exposition, nice colours too.
I just have one comment to your note. I always knew Caspian Sea as a true sea (in the past it was part of the World Ocean and than it was separated so I'm not sure if it is good to call it "lake").
Thanks for sharing

Most beautiful view on this Chilian lagoon..I like the different color-layers which give to the picture a very artistical touch. Amazing nature with almost no vegetation and there is still life. Très beau!
Thanks also for your note.

All elements of nature, Air, water, light and land are in perfect proportion!

Another very beautiful and interesting post from you!
Having visited an ex-salt lake a couple of months ago myself, it was very interesting to see and read about yours here.
Indeed the place here looks completely different and gave you a whole new set of elements to work with.
I really love the curve of the lake here and how you've incorporated that in the composition. Also, the vegetation in the FG creates this terrific pattern and adds a touch of color that looks wonderful while boosting the perspective of the entire place, too.
On top of everything the mountain peaks in the BG act like guardians of this place and complete this gorgeous setting!
Truly nice work, my friend!
Bravo and TSF

An awesome Landscape James, very raw and primitive feeling. The swoop of the shore line and the tufts of vegetation in the FG give this great depth - well done.

This really looks like a place no animal wants to live. But I am sure that next to the flamingos many more animals can be spotted. It is not often you see landscape photo were no human hand has made changes to. Your view of this desolate landscape is breathtaking. I love the different colors in the lake and the subtle differences in the sand and rocks.
