When a desert is covered with colorful flowers

When one of the driest deserts on the planet is covered with colorful flowers, a rare and magical phenomenon that the photographer Mario Ruiz had the opportunity to capture in pictures! This event has just occurred in the Atacama Desert, an hyperarid desert located in Chile, which after heavy rainfall was literally transformed into a giant flower field. If this phenomenon occurs occasionally in this region, it is very rare that it occurs with this intensity of blooms! A phenomenon which we had already talked about last year with the desert region of the Badlands in the United States.
