Around 19 o'clock it is already pitch black, so I grab my tripod and set off, across the road directly into the desert towards the mountains.
After a few hundred meters, the lights of the Eco Lodge are no longer visible and a spectacular starry sky is revealed. The moon is still just above the mountains and draws the outlines of the mountains into the night sky and reflects in the isolated salt plates. As the moon disappears behind the mountains, the stars shine even more impressively.
As there are also some trees and bushes in the desert near the Eco Lodge, I use them as foreground. In the light of my flashlight I discover that most of the strange hills have a hole in the middle, which means that they must have been mud volcanoes originally.
