Nikon ambassador Daniel Kordan spends most of his time travelling around the world with his trusty camera, constantly hunting for new spectacular and breathtaking sights. During his latest expedition to South America he traversed Atacama Desert and visited the Altiplano — the most extensive area of high plateau on Earth outside Tibet. If you're interested in checking out more of his work, you might want to visit his official website and Instagram account.
