Atacama, Chile: Flowering desert – Desierto florido – Blomstrende ørken 2010

October and part of September 2010 was spent in the flowers of the Atacama Desert in the north of Chile. 2011 is an even better year with flowers and will last for some more weeks probably quite a while into December at least in some places. My wife and I will arrive 1st of December in Santiago and will immediately go to the north to look for the flowers.

In Spanish: Octubre y parte de septiembre de 2010 fue el tiempo ocupado para ver las flores del desierto de Atacama en el norte de Chile. El año 2011 se ve aún mejor y la floración perdurará por algunas semanas más, probablemente en algunos lugares hasta diciembre. Mi esposa y yo llegaremos el 1 de diciembre a Santiago e inmediatamente nos dirigiremos al norte a ver las flores.

Here are some flowers from 2010/Aquí hay algunas imagenes tomadas el 2010:
