Hi all, just noticed this post title and it took me back 3 years ago when I was there.

Back then all I had was a little old Canon A70 P&S, but you couldn't fail to get great shots.

What I would give to go back there with a DSLR, maybe one day.

Check out some of my shots at http://www.infinitymedia.co.uk/blog/gallery/album/72157600895944956/Bolivia-photo-gallery-South-America.html

Enjoy! 8)

Gordon - just out of interest, what polarizer is that?
(i.e Hoya Pro 1D, B+W etc etc)

I need to thank you Gordon for the Uyuni recommendation. We´ve just finished a 3 day safari and all of us absolutely loved it. It´s deffinitely been a highlight of our whole trip so far.

Here are some of the photos I came back with:- http://www.flickr.com/photos/benmoscrop ... 514503828/

We did it the other way round; from San Pedro - Chile to Uyuni in Bolivia. Climbing 2000 metres in an hour (from 2500 to 4500) wasn´t so fun but after a day we were all fine again.

A truely great place on earth!

Excellent Telexstar - glad you got up there!

As for the earlier Qs about the polariser, sorry for the delay! It was just a bog standard Hoya CPL - not one of the premium or thin models.

I have been in Peru & Bolivia last year. But not in Uyuni. These pictures make me want to go back. ASAP! :twisted: .

Thanks for sharing.

Wow Gordon, what simply stunning photos, each completely different and yet each one beautiful. I love the orangy and white colouring one, so unusual, (reminds me of apricot sauce ) lol. This is on my wish list.........when i win the lottery.......... thanks for sharing these with us, its great to see photographs from other parts of the world, and sometimes you never in your wildest dreams imagine, they could look like that. Absolutely brilliant, sue :)

Hi Sue, it can be pricey to get to South America, but once you're there, it's pretty affordable - so that trip may be closer than you think!

For example, that entire Altiplano 4WD tour for 3 days plus all food, water, accommodation (admittedly rough!) etc came to 50 USD as I recall... in fact, maybe that was even for two of us...!

Telexstar, there are some truly amazing pics in that set, they really take my breath away! were they all taken with your 18-200? or did you have other kit?
also did you use a polariser at all? i would see so in some of the photos there.
any way- absolutly amazing! nice work :D
