This might be one of my favourite pictures. :-)

It's the Laguna Colorada, in southern Bolivia, in the middle of the Andes. It's 4200 meters high (500 meters higher than Mount Fuji, for example), really desolate place. The red water is not product of photo manipulation, it's really red because of mineral and algae present there, and the yellowish grass is just the typical grass from the region.

I love how it felt like an entirely different planet (a windy, cold one haha).
