Virtual vantage point to the Atacama Desert:

Completely renovated pages - with high-resolution photos (1100 by 640 pixels), usually bigger than 200 kb. The idea is to show the desert of the Atacama Region with all its contrasts: high mountains versus endless plains; fertile valleys versus sandy areas without traces of life; landscapes without dimensions versus straight lines towards the horizon.
