13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Flamingos on the run

I took this shot during my road trip in Atacama, Bolivian part. Driving through desert was exciting, but then the landscape wasn't changing,until we reached Laguna Colorada. Picture blue sky, all the colors mixing and hundreds of flamingos standing in the middle drinking water. Usually guides show only one spot from where outsiders can admire the view. I found a small place down the hill (not forbidden) to observe the flamingos closer and took a series of shots up-close.
