Sunset in Valley of the Moon by taffy

Sunset in Valley of the Moon

I led my zoom tour of the Atacama desert today and my friends said they thought it was a great success! And it gave me reason to review, re-process, and cull the 'unworthy' images. This is a reprocessing of the sunset in Valley of the Moon, known for its almost surreal colors and beauty. We weren't disappointed, as you can see. I could appreciate this trip with the benefit of 6 years hindsight, as a unique and treasured time traveling in an incredible area with our friends Junko and Bill. Those were the days, in so many ways! From December 2014, reprocessed last night.
Glorious. What an amazing experience

Thank you for sharing.

Beautiful. I guess one of the hidden benefits of being locked down is the discovery of previously overlooked photos that merit sharing. This certainly supports that theory.

No better time than now to revisit and relive times of travel. I am glad your zoom tour was a success. This sunset is almost surreal with its painted sky and strongly lit tracks.
