A Russian Photographer named Daniel Kordan recently took a trip to the Altiplano region of South America. Among other geographical features, the location is also known for the Uyuni salt flat and the severe lack of any light pollution. The salt flat lies 12,300 feet above sea level, where Daniel camped out one night to get some amazing shots of the Milky Way.

Daniel used a special astrophotography camera that picks up the colors and fine details in the sky, allowing for shots like these. The barren salt flats are naturally reflective given their homogenous surface. Daniels Expedition into the desert created stunning photographs that make the barriers between sky and grown disappear.
