Several large expanses of bright white salt flats can be observed in this image focusing on Bolivia and Argentina. The Salar de Uyuni, in Bolivia, is visible in the upper left corner, and the Salinas Grandes, in Argentina, can be observed at the bottom center.

The Andes Mountains can be een running vertically through the center of the image. Two important lakes can also be observed: Mar Chiquita, in Argentina, appearing green in color to the right of the Salinas Grandes salt flats, and Lake Poopó, in Bolivia, north of the Salar de Uyuni (visible only in the full image).
