GigaPan w/Canon SD850


Salar Grande (salt deposit), viewed from the east (same location as gigapan.org/viewGigapan.php?id=13255, but looking the opposite way).

The "haze" obscuring the background mountains is likely to be dust.

Mines in this salar produce enough salt to fulfill the domestic salt consumption of Chile, and export up to 10 million tons of salt per year. (Those of you putting salt on your driveways this time of year may well be using salt from here.)
