Salt Flats, Utah
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Here are the Salt Flats of the Great Salt Lake in Utah. Actually, these are mud flats, a fact which I discovered when I could not pull my foot out of it. I finally went barefoot.|
To the west, the salt flats are more salty and snow white. There used to be a resort here called "Saltair" and back 100 years ago, it was all the rage to take the train there. Now it is just mud, and not even many shorebirds or even insects find their way here. At least not in April.
The mountain in the background is actually Antelope Island, an interesting place with bison, antelope, and other animals. You can see here, perhaps, how these animals got to the island?

you certainly caught the wide open feel to this place well here. The clarity is great, as is the DOF from the f/22. I also have this camera/lens combo and love it!
The b & w is a nice touch and something not often seen here on TN, although personally i think i would prefer to see the blue skies contrast against the mud. I also think that the dead wood in the bottom right could be a more prominant feature perhaps? Still a great shot though, i like it.
An another great B&W landscape taken from an effective POV.
The clouds and dead wood look nice and defined in this scene.
TFS and have a nice day!

the very wide angle framing of this wonderful
landscape/seascape with the black & white conversion
it gives the beautiful atmosphere effect to the photo, TFS
