The Salton Sea...

I made my way to The Salton Sea today.  I have been working on a web site for my buddy Mike Cassidy and a portion of his portfolio include some really incredible night photographs taken in the Salton Sea area.  He had mentioned a month or so ago that we should travel out there and it just so happened that this weekend we were able to make the trip happen.

It was a pretty long drive out there and it is truly out in the middle of nowhere.  Other than his images that I have seen before I didn't really know what to expect about the area.  It was really a very surreal environment with a lot of photographic appeal.  The textures and harsh environment are everywhere and it really was an amazing place.

We spent a couple of hours scouting and then prepped for some photographs once the sun started going down.  Mike said that the lighting wasn't the best he's seen it but I thought it was a really great experience and I am happy with the handful of images that I captured during the trip.  I utilized my Nikon D300 and the Nikon 12-24 F 4.0 AF-S DX for the shots captured here.
