I can’t get over the breathtaking range of color emitting from these otherwise prosaic salt flats and dry lake beds, captured so brilliantly by David Burdeny. The Canadian photographer spent years flying over salterns in Western Australia, Utah’s Great Salt Lake and the Mojave Desert, during different times of days and seasons, to seize the right angles. Though they’re man made, you can’t deny the beauty that occurs naturally thanks to organic forces.
