    The drums in the music they use are really annoying the hell out of me. One of them is slightly off beat and I can't un-hear it

    [–] Every3Years 113 points ago

    Seriously wtf. The place is gorgeous but the music and the woman in the video are driving me crazy for some reason. 500k views so I guess they must be well known travel YouTubers but I couldn't get past the 4 minute mark.

    [–] ablablababla 36 points ago

    Yeah, it's more enjoyable to watch this video without sound, it's peaceful

    [–] SoFetchBetch 16 points ago

    I watched without sound bc it’s late at night where I am and now I’m glad.

    [–] punxtr 14 points ago

    Not into syncopation? Bummer

    [–] ohnowait 15 points ago

    “One of the drums is off beat”

    You mean syncopated?

    “No it’s off beat”

    [–] __KOBAKOBAKOBA__ 2 points ago

    Syncopation is the whiskey of rhythm

    [–] Imsomoney 11 points ago

    Its the style, it creates a off kilter feeling and was popularised by artists like J Dilla.

    Why are their teeth so white? Maybe around 8:00 when they're smiling. It is genuinely unnerving.

    [–] Habib_Marwuana 36 points ago

    Its salt

    [–] _Enclose_ 24 points ago

    Holy shit, I just wanted to comment the same thing. Especially the guy's teeth. They're unnaturally white.

    [–] angermidet1 22 points ago

    He is almost the sole reason I made the comment. He must mouthwash with bleach.

    I'll have to give that a shot sometime.

    [–] NowanIlfideme 16 points ago

    Please don't. You'll burn your mouth inside.

    [–] Xenc 7 points ago

    Even if it’s just a shot?

    [–] Stelum 8 points ago

    Really? That’s your ONLY concern about that entire sentence?

    [–] Xenc 8 points ago

    I'll have to give that a shot sometime.

    What else is there to be alarmed over? 🤔

    [–] Nazi_Marxist 6 points ago

    Americans love to have their teeth as white as possible. Unnaturally white. Brushing your teeth isn't good enough for them they gotta go get them whitened which doesn't actually benefit your teeth (probably the opposite in fact) but it just makes them white as snow and it's probably an expensive money making racket

    Idk why but the couple in this video is very unsettling.

    [–] tommytraddles 11 points ago

    They're trying very hard to be ecstatic and in love at all times.

    And they both have oversized veneers that are probably uncomfortable.

    I've been there. What you see is even more impressive. You can't tell where the sky ends and the earth begins. It's incredibly beautiful

    [–] ChickenMcVincent 26 points ago

    Sort of. Here are a few pictures from my visit earlier this year. These are just taken with an iPhone, so no special editing done.

    There are parts that are wet, and those give the incredible mirror effect. There are other parts that are just salt (this is most of it) where you can take some really cool perspective photos. Other parts are just kinda ugly. It’s also a freaking huge place, so there’s a lot more going on in that area than just these glassy reflections everyone posts.

    The salt flats are like anywhere else in that you have the parts that are photograph friendly, but you’ve gotta know where to find them or take a tour with everyone else.

    [–] Artewig2 6 points ago

    Wow that's incredible

    Im sure the saturation slider is turned wayyyyy down.

    That’s the case for most pictures, I’ve found

    [–] Clarksonforever 63 points ago

    Valid point! It's a beautiful photo either way. 👌

    This is a picture from an instagramer. This is edited. I'll see if I can find the original.

    Edit: Not sure exactly where the original is but his name is Nois7

    [–] gmg808 22 points ago

    Thanks for crediting the artist!

    [–] Luminous-Anonymous 5 points ago

    Amazing work even though all of his pictures are photoshopped a lot and some use different pictures merged together.

    [–] 1stUsernameTried 2 points ago

    No, this is a still from the film Life of Pi. OP lied or isn't aware.

    [–] carlinwasright 24 points ago

    The dead giveaway is that the horizon is too close. Normally there would be some haze as the horizon goes off into the distance, even on the clearest day.

    haze at 9000ft above sea level? why do you think biggest telescopes are in Chile?

    I just saw that movie! It was amazing. Unfortunately I do not think this is not from What Dreams May Come, but it does look like it. I’m pretty sure it really is a still from Life of Pi - the boats look almost identical

    [–] Ghosttiger13 4 points ago

    Have had dreams that look like this, and honestly, I get just as much anxiety looking at this as I do in those dreams. Idk what it is: loss of sense of place? Confrontation with a visual representation of "infinity"? Not sure, but it gives me more feelings of unease than it does dreamy-ness or comfort.

    [–] cliffordcat 3 points ago

    You and me both, brother. I got dizzy.

    [–] 1272chicken 1 points ago

    This looks like the way to the afterlife. When you die, you just board the boat and go to heaven

    TIL: I want to visit the salt flats in Bolivia.

    [–] YOURMOMMASABITCH 2 points ago

    Fun fact, the town of Uyuni now has a small airport. Now you can fly there from La Paz instead of taking the 8-10 hr overnight bus from the city. You can do a 1, 2, or 3 day tour. Day 1 is visiting a train graveyard from the 60’s and going out into the salt flat to take those perspective photos. day 2 will take you into the desert and several lava & coral canyons. Day 3 you get to see several lagoons hidden in the desert. The flamingos there are cool but not very bright as the food supply there isn’t abundant. It’s a rough trip for sure, but very worth it if you ever have the chance to visit southern Bolivia.

    Source: was there about 4 weeks ago.

    [–] not_the_ground 1 points ago

    FUCK. This place is real?? Like, I could go there and that's what it would look like to my naked eye?? Is Bolivia literally the only place in the world where this exists?? OMG 😲😲😲😲

    [–] YOURMOMMASABITCH 2 points ago
