Stella Maris prays her prayer for the Planet Earth in the Gran Salar de Atacama (Atacama Great Salt Flat - Northern Chile). The main part of the video is at the Flamingos Lagoons, near San Pedro de Atacama. The volcano with fumarole shown in front of the lagoons is the Volcano Láscar (Volcán Láscar) at 5,450 m altitude. The wonderful music is by the Estonian composer Arvo Pärt (Fratres).
