Salt mounds in Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia. The Salar de Uyuni is the world's largest (12 000 km²) and highest (3 700 m) salt flat, ca. 25 times as large as the Bonneville Salt Flats. It's the remnant of a prehistoric lake surrounded by mountains without drainage outlets. Salt is harvested in the traditional method: the salt is scraped into small mounds for water evaporation and easier transportation, dried over fire, and finally enriched with iodine.

A Taiwanese Monk at the Salar of Uyuni during winter. Photo taken at sunset time. He was travelling for a few weeks in order to see some nice places and to meet some of his fellows scattered in Latin America. He was given a tablet computer to document his travels, which he seemed to have done pretty well.
