journey to the salton sea

Published by at 10:30 pm under travel,visual concepts

Last weekend I went on a desert journey to the Salton Sea with my friend Martin Trailer. Both of us are still wading through our images and making posts as we find time. Martin beat me to the punch by posting an image of me walking out on some mud flats to shoot a series of dead trees stranded in the water.

They are not the typical vision of a idealized landscape, but when you are in a desert shooting into a dieing sea – a beauty of bleakness seems to be in order.
