Flowers Fields In The Desert: Watch This Unusual Phenomenom - Article Picture

Chile's Atacama Desert is one of the driest places on Earth. But parts of the usually arid landscape are currently covered in a multitude of flowers, following massive downpours earlier in 2015 linked to this year's "Godzilla El Niño".

The floral phenomenon — where dormant seeds bloom in spring after high rainfall events — is known as desierto florido, or flowering desert.

The spectacle will not last for much longer as the landscape is expected to return to normal from November.
