October 2017

During the southern winter of 2017 significant rainfall hit the Atacama desert. Consequently during August the normally brown desert landscape started to turn green.
Millions of flowers began to cover the plains and hills with a yellow, blue, purple and white carpet of colors. In Chile this phenomenon is called “desierto florido”! It is almost unbelievable if one only knows the desert from normal dry years. Here you can see the difference of the same place in a dry and a rainy year.
Take a look at new photos from this year’s blooming Atacama desert and to some close up images of the flowers.
