A layer of water is covering the dried Bonneville Salt Flats and the sunrays are reflecting on its surface, like a candle light in a mirror. The water is shallow and clear, that we can see the peculiar texture of the salt flats. Steel blue clouds are covering an azure blue sky; the color of the salt flats varies from turquoise to space blue. The sky and the ground are almost the same color, and it seems like heaven is a continuation of the earth. Furthermore in 2004, the capsule of the “Stardust” spacecraft landed in the Bonneville Salt Flats, so we can say with confidence that the sky at Bonneville is more than just great, it is infinitely great. On the border of these two worlds there is drawn an ink black line of the mountain range. The salt lake is a fantastic creation of nature. All these facts make this print a gem of fine art and Utah photography. The Bonneville Salt Flats is a salt pan in northwestern Utah. The area was named after Benjamin Bonneville, an army officer and an explorer of the American West. The salt flats is famous because of the motorcar racing which has taken place at the salt flats since 1914. The racing takes place at the part of the Bonneville Salt Flats known as the Bonneville Speedway. Many tourists visit this place because of the fame of the racing, but also many of them want to see the crystal beauty of the lake.
