There have been a few rather spectacular photos posted on the OTT, and it was suggested that a new thread be started just for this purpose.

So do you have a picture of somewhere special you were this morning you would like to share?

This represents the view from the office today on the 8 hour drive to Antofagasta - but that's not all! Included is the actual office as a bonus! :).

Red 4WDs kitted out with all the hi-vis gear are as common in N Chile as white ones are in the Pilbara. Hertz gave me one that must have been returned from minesite action. At least it was easy to spot when I parked it ;):).

The Atacama Desert is a BIG place! :).

re: The view from my "office"

This was me before work (well to be honest it was a Sunday) a few weeks back. Sunday morning coffee walk with my friend Sue. Workday views are a bit pedestrian - my desk doesn't even have a window! When I travel for work things can be better….sometimes.

Two views from the 8th floor of my hotel in Antofagasta. Early morning, so dull. Nothing special - err, make that ordinary - but may as well throw 'em in.

This is what I mean about the red 4WDs that proliferate like flies in the mining madhouse of N Chile. Just a small section of the parking area at ANF.

A series of views N-S from my LAN office on the ANF-SCL run this morning. Worth sitting on the left going S. It's a whY-only service, so I booked it separately to my DONE5.

The big mountain in the last pic is Aconcagua, the highest mountain in the S hemisphere at 6962m.
