The desert is relentless. It's sun. It's wind. It's sand. Its long stretches of nullness. From Northern Peru to around La Serena, Chile, its desert. Blues of ocean. Blues of sky. Browns of dunes. Browns of endless beach. The majority of that stretch, the highway follows the coast line south. Which for any lover of the sea, the fatigue and exhaustion of being whipped and beaten by sand and wind for 5 months straight on the motorcycle is much less hellish than it sounds. In fact, I would do it again in a heart beat....in a nice slow long pausing heart beat. This set of photos represents the stretch of Chile from Arica to La Serena, a stretch of around 1600 kilometers. All photos taken by Troyano Newton.
