If surreal pictures are your thing, then carry your gear and take a trip to the Salar de Uyuni in the Andes of southwest Bolivia.

It is basically a dried-up desert lake, where a thin layer of water forms up during wet climates.

Stretching over 4,000 square miles, the world's largest salt flat will let you take breathtaking wide angle shots, without any distractions.

Capturing the fascinating natural phenomenon called Northern Lights is a dream for many travel photographers, and luckily, the Fairbanks region in Alaska (USA) offers you the exact opportunity.

Schedule your trip between April-August for best results.
