Great Salt Lake

Salt Lake City

On our return flight from Jackson Hole, Wyoming to Atlanta, we flew through Salt Lake City. As we were approaching the Salt Lake City airport the scene above came into view through my window. What caught my eye was the yellowish substance that was floating on the surface of the Great Salt Lake that shone like gold. I was also impressed by the massive size of the lake which I learned covers an area of around 1,700 miles. I managed to grab my camera in time to take a couple shots.

    That is a fantastic shot, Beate!!
    It looks like it was taken from a mountain, or maybe from a Piper Cub with the door open. It is much clearer than you’d expect from a commercial jet. That’s a keeper, for sure!!!

    • Thanks Jerry. Yes, I was surprised that it came out as clear as it did. My window must have been pretty clean…and with a little help from photoshop.
