The driest place on earth is also one of the most beautiful. In September, 2012, we had the fortune of exploring and photographing the Atacama desert of Chile and the Altiplano of Bolivia. Rugged, desolate, and incredibly beautiful, these are photographers' paradises. If you have the chance and can withstand the often rugged conditions (roads going to 16,500 feet altitude, few tourist amenities, and harsh weather), this is a part of the world that needs to be seen before climate change takes its toll.
