This video is a time-lapse of the mystical-seeming beauty of the salt flat of Uyuni. While this, at times, looks like something out of our world, Uyuni is in Bolivia.
The strange reflections are caused by flood water. The flats are the largest in the world, over 10,000KM2, near the Andes and have an altitude of 3.66m.
