The Andes Mountain geyser field, located in northern Chile, El Tatio, looks as though it could be the landscape of the planet Mars. It is the third largest geyser field in the world. British Columbia-based interactive web designer and visual artist Owen Perry recently visited the field and snapped his surreal-looking surroundings beautifully.

The field, which is 4,320 meters above sea level, has over 80 active geysers that give off steam and are made up of glistening mineral deposits. The photographer made sure to capture the unique features by shooting them just as the sun began to rise. The orange-red morning sun shone through the steam and made the geysers appear illuminated and surreal. The photos truly don't look like they are set on planet Earth.
