Valle de la Luna
The bright side of the moon

240 Seconds in the Valley of the Moon

Your mental health break for the day comes in the form of this four minute collection of shots and panoramas from the Valle de la Luna, or Valley of the Moon, in the Atacama desert of northern Chile about 15 kilometers from San Pedro de Atacama. Its name comes from the variety of landscapes, colors and textures in the area, likening it to the surface of the moon. (The bright side.)

It’s an absolutely stunning area and one of the driest places on the planet. Some areas haven’t felt a raindrop in hundreds of years. I posted a few times briefly on the area, here and here.

The music in the video notebook is ‘Luz‘ by Universildo from the album, ‘Luces del Aire‘. Check it out.

Footage shot on 24-Mar-2013.
