The Salt Flats / by Sarah Robertson

The Salt Flats are one of many unique landscapes in Utah. They essentially consist of 30,000 acres of nothing but salt. This distinctive area comes from the ancient Lake Bonneville. When the lake dried up it left all this salt. This area is naturally high contrast so I felt photographing it in black and white was just a given. I love how barren this place is. The landscape is so empty that I really had to work to make these images. This set of photographs was taken at “Tree of Utah” sculpture and at the Salt Flats rest stop which is right off I-80W. [Shot on BW400CN taken with a Canon AE-1]
