One of the best things about the salt flats is the ability to take some photos which really mess with perspective. Just do a google search there will be hundreds of amazing shots. Some members of our group had been planning shots and buying props in the weeks leading up to our salt flats adventure... which was great as it made for some excellent pictures.
Next stop is Salar de Uyuni, the world's largest salt flat, and it can only be described as breath-taking. After taking some time to see how the locals farm the salt by creating pyramids allowing the salt to dry out and then packing into plastic bags for sale, we headed off Incahuasi Island in the middle of the salt flats to look at some awesome cactus and have some lunch.
Day 1 of our 4x4 rally from Uyuni, the gateway to the salt flats, to San Pedro de Atacama in Chile started with a stop off at the Train Cemetery. Just 3Km from Uyuni lies the rusting shells of many trains, It is a great place to explore and take photos.
