[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Blooming cactus flower on Inca Huasi (or Isla Pescado) in the middle of the Uyuni Salt Flat. Cropped image.
Due to the intense light (+ reflection on the salt), the pink in the flower leaves faded a little. So I added it afterwards to make it look more like it does in reality. This flower bloomed five meters above the ground, so I had to climb some rocks to get level with it and have the volcanos in the background (+ zoomed in 4x). Best regards

Ah .. Desert of Salar!

A delicate flower with fine details,

Green and blue and white make up the fine color palette!
