Two hours west of Salt Lake City lies Bonneville salt flats. I have visited this area numerous times, though until this trip I’d always found a just a dry lake bed as far as the eye could see (which is beautiful in its own right) Though this time, I guess because I was a little closer to winter, a inch of water floated slowly along the surface, creating mirror that stretched to the horizon. I spent 3 days watching the light change over the fantastic scene.

Cloud shadows move across the Alvord Playa
Cracked earth in the Badwater Basin
Dawn breaking on the horizon
Lone grove of fan palms in Joshua Tree
A line in the sand
Route 190 as it heads up the mountain pass
Soft light paints dunes in the Badwater Basin
Wildrose charcoal kilns
Moonlight creeping into the kiln
Where the salt meets earth
Burn man burn
A trail in the salt flat
I’m going to be playing catchup with the next few posts. Finally got around to working a bunch of images from some wandering around I did last year, I just kept on traveling and was so busy shooting I never found time to work the backlog.
