Thamyres Matarozzi, UK, Europe, Sony World Photography Awards 2012

The photograph shows a salt desert in the south of Bolivia.  The desert was flooded due to a heavy rain storm which happened a few days earlier.  This is a rare phenomenon as a desert has a vey dry climate.  The rain in such places only happens once every few years.  It was a very special and unique spectacle.  Once the salt was dry the translucent mirror that surrounded us was gone.  However thanks to a photographic register we can share and be amazed by such beauty again and again.
