Atacama desert in bloom

Atacama desert in bloom as seen from Landsat TM using the standard false colour band combination 432 (RGB). The image below was taken during August 2010 as a reference and the upper image corresponds to September 2011. The bloom can be clearly distinguished from the "red" areas in the 2011 image depicting the sprouting of seeds after this rainy and snowy winter.
