Salar de Uyuni

Dead valley is a white clay pan in the Namib-Naukluft Park, Namibia. When the river Tsauchab flooded, the climate allowed the camel thorn trees to grow. After the climate changed, the sand dunes didn´t allow the river to reach the trees again, which are estimated to be 900 years old. The trees died and today they stick out as silent witnesses.
Painted Desert in Arizona
The painted desert owes its colours to the layers of eroded Siltstone, Mudstone and the Triassic Chinle Formation. The iron and manganese compounds within, create various pigments.
It is known as the lowest and the hottest place on Earth. The desert which lies in the North East of Ethiopia was created by volcanoes with very hot temperatues which reach more than 50 °C.
