Slide 1 of 13: The salt flats near San Francisco and Utah.

Aerial Photos Of Salt Flats

A series of aerial photos of salt flats taken over Utah and San Francisco's salt lakes. The hues are a product of varying salinity, and pigmented microbes in each lake, resulting in the striking color contrasts. The continuous shift in salt levels and regular salt extraction process result in the landscape being unique to the moment the photo was captured.
