NEX-7 among the Atacama geoglyphs
5 months ago
I recently enjoyed a vacation in Chile, which included a few days in the Atacama Desert, the driest region on earth. It's also less well known for its amazing geoglyphs, which are believed to date back between about 600 and 1500 years. I had with me my trusty NEX-7 and newer RX100, and between them, they captured over 2000 shots. In both cases, I shot entirely in RAW, apart from panorama and HHT shots. I had several lenses with me, but all the shots here were with my SEL18200 (I didn't fancy changing lenses in the desert). All images are processed in DxO Optics Pro 8.
Much of the desert is in the form of a plateau around 3000' high (the Altiplano), which is occasionally crossed by rivers descending from the Andes, which carve out deep valleys:
