Mars shining above Mt Huayna Potosí reflected in lake before dawn, Cordillera Real, Bolivia
The photo was taken on 10 May 2016, a few days before Earth passed between Mars and the sun so the 2 planets were at their closest (in opposition). The bright "star" almost directly above Mars is Saturn. Mars is also in the head area of the constellation Scorpio, you can see the body arcing up to the left with Scorpio's brightest star Antares making a triangle with Mars and Saturn.
