"Winter in the Salt Flats" [3.5:1]
Bonneville Salt Flats, Utah, USA
The Bonneville Salt Flats is a popular tourist destination located about two hours west of Salt Lake City along Interstate 80 on the Utah-Nevada border. This winter scene is not the expected appearance by visitors to the Salt Flats; however during winter, snow melts due to the high salt content, leaving a vast shallow sea. As warmer temperatures come in spring, salt will again crystallize on the surface, leaving a white sea in its place.
This shot was captured along the perimeter of the Salt Flats, where sagebrush and other desert foliage grow abundantly.
