The Great Salt Lake / by Sarah Robertson

It was a late afternoon last June when I went exploring to the Great Salt Lake Marina. Having lived in Utah for four years I thought it was time I visited the lake that gave SLC its name.  I was there just an hour or two before sunset and the light turned this landscape into something magnificent. While visiting I learned that the lake itself has quite the interesting history. It, like the Salt Flats, are remnants from the Ancient Lake Bonneville. Lake Bonneville, at one point covered a decent portion of Utah. The lake in its current condition is not very deep, only about 35 feet. Due to run off and different weather systems the size of the lake varies from year to year. It really is a unique place to see. [Shot on Portra 160 taken with a Mamiya 645]
