This and following posts are from excursions with Cosmo Andino Tours, who offer a great service.  This excursion was to Valle de la Luna (Moon Valley).

I saw the cracks before I ventured there.  I assume from the fact that I’m writing this that I survived the experience.

Valle de la Luna is about thirteen kilometres west of San Pedro de Atacama.

.

Aerial Photography, Atacama Desert, Chile, Landscape, Nature, Photography, Travel, Valle de la Luna, Wilderness

It is a part of the Cordillera de la Sal (Salt Mountain Range).

.

It is also inside Los Flamencos National Reserve and part of the Atacama Desert.

Valle de la Luna is comprised of sand, stone and salt. It is a totally arid area without any precipitation.

Tulor and Pukará de Quitor

23rd November 2015. Atacama Desert, Northern Chile.

.

In the first morning of my visit to the Atacama Desert, I joined a local archæological tour.

.

Aerial Photography, Atacama Desert, Chile, Landscape, Nature, Photography, Pukará de Quitor, Travel, Tulor, Wilderness.

First we visited the ancient village of Tulor.  As the sign says, the village dates from 800BC to 500AD.

.

Aerial Photography, Atacama Desert, Chile, Landscape, Nature, Photography, Pukará de Quitor, Travel, Tulor, Wilderness

The area is a desert environment today but would not have been as dry when people lived here.

.

Aerial Photography, Atacama Desert, Chile, Landscape, Nature, Photography, Pukará de Quitor, Travel, Tulor, Wilderness

We are walking towards a couple of recreated houses.

Remains of the actual dwellings.  The village was at an oasis and was abandoned when the oasis dried up.  It is not well protected and is slowly eroding away.

.

Aerial Photography, Atacama Desert, Chile, Landscape, Nature, Photography, Pukará de Quitor, Travel, Tulor, Wilderness

I think this is a llama (rather than an alpaca).  In the oasis near our next destination.

.

Aerial Photography, Atacama Desert, Chile, Landscape, Nature, Photography, Pukará de Quitor, Travel, Tulor, Wilderness

And that is Pukará de Quitor, which the Spanish conquistadors besieged and took in 1540.

.

Aerial Photography, Atacama Desert, Chile, Landscape, Nature, Photography, Pukará de Quitor, Travel, Tulor, Wilderness

The fortress was built around 1200 by the Atacameño people, who occupied the land from around 8,000BC.

.

Aerial Photography, Atacama Desert, Chile, Landscape, Nature, Photography, Pukará de Quitor, Travel, Tulor, Wilderness

The Tiwanaka people were overlords from 400 to 1000AD and the Incas shortly before the Spanish Conquest.

.

Aerial Photography, Atacama Desert, Chile, Landscape, Nature, Photography, Pukará de Quitor, Travel, Tulor, Wilderness

As you can see, it it a large fortification, protected by a gorge on the other side.  The Spanish took it with the aid of Yanacona Indians.  They then executed 300 of the local defenders and displayed the heads on poles.  At that time, it became known as “the City of the Heads”.

.

The oasis it was built beside is still there.

San Pedro de Atacama

21st to 22nd November 2015. Atacama Desert, Northern Chile.

I am now completing posting of my 2015 trip to Mauritius, Reunion, Madagascar, Falkland Islands, South Georgia and Atacama Desert with final posts on the Atacama Desert.  You can find other posts on this expedition from the itinerary here.

While this post is about my arrival in San Pedro de Atacama, the first few images are from the plane the previous day.  This one is from the southern coast of Chile or even the Straits of Magellan.  There are houses on the peninsula in the foreground.

The Atacama Desert is the driest desert in the world and may also be the oldest, yet humans have lived here based around rivers and oases for 9,000 years.

San Pedro de Atacama is the launch pad for exploring the region, with 5,000 permanent inhabitants and at 2,400 meters (8,000 feet).  It was part of Bolivia until Bolivia lost its sea coast after the War of the Pacific in 1879 to 1884.

This is the first of a series of posts on monochrome conversions of images from the Ladakh trip.

These images are monochrome conversions of some of the images from the Abstract Australia post, taken from the air, mainly over Central Australia.

Abstract Australia

18 January 2018, Over Australia and Singapore

.

This is the first post of my recent Ladakh trip.  I will maintain a list of links to these posts in the Ladakh Itinerary post.

We took off for Singapore from Canberra via Sydney.  We were on a new Singapore Airlines jet and I had a window seat from Sydney.  Usually, you look out the window occasionally and are surprised as to where you are.  In this case though, I had a potentially 360 degree external view on the console on the back of the next seat, so I was able to keep an eye on that and see where interesting views might be cominbg up.

.

This is Lake Burragorang, in the lower Blue Mountains west of Sydney.  It is a man-made lake forming part of Sydney’s water supply and the water is held back by Warragamba Dam.

.

Aerial Photography, Australia, Landscape, Photography, Singapore, Travel

An hour and a quarter later, we are over South Australia and there are salt lake beds out the window.

.

I can’t tell you with any accuracy where the views are but the plane flew along a line between Lake Torrens and Lake Eyre.
