A July Light Show by tourofnature A July Light Show by tourofnature
After missing an incredible sunset last night I wasn't about to pass up another chance to capture some quality light. I revisited an area I haven't shot at for a couple of years and it brought back good memories.

We've had some active weather in the area and I went chasing the clouds to find this composition. You can see the high salt levels still found in this ancient lake, for miles the bottom is covered by a thin layer of white crystallized salt.

Great Salt Lake, Utah.

Canon 17-40 L. CPL. 2SS GND.

Amazing shot. The sunsets over the GSL are so fantastic this time of year. I plan on going out there in the next week.

I really like the way you composed this, it's encompasses a lot of the lake.

Great shot! Is there a collection of salt on the water or is that artifact from sharpening?

Thank you! Its small debris in the water that was exaggerated by sharpening, any tips on how to reduce it?

Whenever you do your sharpening layer, just mask out that certain part with your paintbrush. There isn't much visual detail in that part of the water so sharpening wouldn't be necessary.

salt layers and a good crust of sea monkeys! Love this place man! You need to go back in the winter early in the AM. Coyotes are hunting mice in the snow and they'll do the jump like foxes do. Also, eagles are usually here in Feb but bring at least a 400mm lens.

I've got a couple of shots of coyotes out on Antelope Island, awesome to see them hunting. I'd love to get back out there with some better glass to capture the birds, get some frame filling shots.

Hit the water fowl management area in late Feb/early Mar and you'll get closer shots of the eagles.
