Desert and Mountains in Chile
A good portion of central and northern Chile can be seen to the left, with parts of western Argentina (right) and southwestern Bolivia (top right).
This area includes dry desert, the snow-capped Andes Mountains and fertile valleys.
The Mejillones Peninsula is a promiment feature on the Chilean coast. It is surrounded by the waters of the Pacific Ocean to the west, with the world’s driest desert, the Atacama, to the east.
East of the peninsula, in the middle of the Atacama Desert, the Salar de Atacama, one of the largest salt flats in the world, identifiable as a slightly grey patch among the clouds.
Another close-up shows a part of the Andes Mountains. A small town on the Argentinian side is visible, nestled in the valley below. Its banks are surrounded by fields and crops.
The final detail image shows a river in southwestern Bolivia. It appears tan from sediments and has been further accentuated by some sun glint.
