The train cemetery has become a place full of stories and memories of the past, where visitors see the ruins of looted trains from the past.
Mirror effect on the Uyuni Salt Flat
At the end of the rainy season (February-March), the salt flat changes, creating a mirror effect thanks to a mineral called Ulexite, the “television stone”. It is transparent and has the power to refract the image of the surface.
The salt becomes impermeable and causes water to accumulate on the surface, creating a unique mirror.
Watching the sunrise with this great reflection created by the salt flat is something indescribable that all travellers to the salt flats will never forget.
How to get the best pictures?
One of the highlights of the Salar de Uyuni is the endless horizon that allows photographers to play with perspective and depth of field.
The key to taking the best photos is to get the camera as low as you can and as close to your subject as possible. This provides a perspective in which the subject is larger than the human subjects, who would be further away.
But don’t let your subjects venture too far away: the further the distance between the object and the subject, the harder it is to maintain focus. If your camera allows it, make the aperture as narrow as possible.
