Atacama from above

Looking southeast from near the Chilean coast, the structures of the Andes are obvious from the space station. The Altiplano (aka Puna), sitting between 3 and 5,000 metres is visible in the foreground, graced by a line of young volcanoes. Between the upthrust blocks of the mountains gleam the salty white salares, seasonal salt lakes where rain gathers in outlet free basins and evaporates, leaving its cargo of minerals dissolved from the mountains behind. Near the centre of the picture a geological transition between the Altiplano and the lower altitude Sierras Pampeanas is visible. Far away to the upper left, the Atlantic coast, near Buenos Aires in Argentina. The colours reflect climate, with the nearby red-brown deserts of the western coast contrasting with the green agricultural plains of the distant pampas. The salares between them indicate a semi arid region between the two.

Found this while taking a forest walk. Looks like an old plow or something? Taken with my phone so it turned out a bit too bright
