Street corner, 29 Palms – about 60 miles east of Palm Springs in the Mojave Desert.
Two of the 29 Palms that give the city its name.
A rather odd looking palm tree made it’s way into my shot.
Okay, this is the coolest thing. This is a pool of water pumped into a trench in the middle of a dry lake out in the middle of nowhere. The lake bed has a ton of salt in it so the salt forms crystals in the water which is then harvested to be served on our tables. The water is the most perfect emerald green color I’ve ever seen.
That’s a pile of salt on top of a fresh bed of salt.
More salt pond images. They’re like impressionist paintings. If the water was a little warmer, I’d have jumped in just to see how I would float.
It’s a surreal landscape out on the lake bed. What looks like snow is all salt. I ‘spose it has to come from somewhere.
