Ok I am one of those pesky people that loves to fly a drone. Sure they can be annoying but look at what they can produce. This otherworldly piece, that would not be out of place on the surface of Jupiter, is actually a salt lake just south of the small wheatbelt town of Wagin. These lakes that are numerous and scattered throughout Western Australia all have their moment to shine, that is, they look their best at different times of the year. When there is too much water in them they can be a single block of colour, when they have no water in them they are usually just white. But when they are only partially full that is when the magic happens. Colours of the water are varied due to algae and the exposed salt beds can be white or tainted with minerals. The pattern and colour of these natural phenomenon are like an artists palette, full of life and abstract wonder.
Emerging artist, Ian Daniell, chose this image to interpret. His piece is striking, colourful and a super interesting interpretation of my photography.
