Closer to home, the bonneville salt flats just north of I 80 in Wendover Utah afford similar opportunities. They are so big and "flat" that you can see the curvature of the earth. Bring sunscreen and an umbrella if you go there.

Yes, such pictures are the norm in salt pans. Here is one from Namibia's Etosha park (not taken by me).

In 2009 the photographer Murray Fredericks produced a rather stunning video called "Salt" of a similar location in Australia. Especially after a heavy rain, the scene is almost otherworldly.

Salar de Uyuni makes a repeat appearance on TOP. Recall this print offer: http://theonlinephotographer.typepad.com/the_online_photographer/2013/09/the-caponigro-print-offer.html

I appreciate how John Paul's image captures both the flats and their potential to be reflective with water. I now regret not purchasing a print. How did the pairing come across in person?

I never heard of this place, and now it seems like everybody is going there.
