Chile - February 10th, 2011

The Mejillones Peninsula reaches out into the Pacific from Chilean coastline. It marks the country’s widest point along a parallel (362 km).

A green stain, created by sediments or phytoplankton, can be observed in the water both north and south of the peninsula. Inland, the dry terrain belongs to the Atacama Desert, the world’s driest desert.
