Photographer's Note

From the summit of Cerro Sairecabur (5970 m) you look south over the caldera to the Salar de Atacama. Left is Cerro Licancabur and when you look through the light smog over the Salar, which is produced by the Chuquicamata copper mine, you can make out Volcan Llullaillaco (6723 m) with its snow field right from the middle of the picture at the horizon in 230 kilometers distance. In the centre of the caldera at the bottom of the picture you can catch a glimpse of the RLT-telescope, run by the Harvard university under the supervision of Prof. Dan Marrone.
