Photographer's Note

This is El Tatio Gaysers, as described before, is the highest geyser field in the world at more than 4,200mts of altitude.
This photo shows an old geothermal machine laying in the middle of the filed. In the WS I show a detail of that device. By the time we were in San Pedro de Atacama, many local residents hoisted black flags in protest for the plan to install a new geothermal plant in the area, which, they claim, will destroy the geysers as tourist attraction. I have not followed up this news in details, so I do not know more details about this matter.

Photo taken with Cokin Grad Filter.
