Salt Of The Earth.......



 ~ Reflections on the Dry Creek salt fields ~

"Salt is born of the purest of parents
the sun and the sea"....... Pythagoras.

....................................

I've often passed these salt fields in an area
north of the city not generally know for its salubriousness
and marvelled at the transformation created by evening light
reflecting off salt fields -It truly turns into a quite magical place

Unfortunately there are few spot to pull over off the busy highway
to take photos - so these transient views were taken from a distance
and then cropped, I hope it gives you an idea of the beauty of the place.


Looking west towards Torrens Island power station

We were just driving past there yesterday. Always think of getting back there at sundown or sunrise to catch the reflections from these salt fields.
Great captures.

Such a perfect morning capture in that sunrise!

It looks great, almost the salt dunes are cut out with scissors for a zig-zag edge.

Excellent zigzaggy reflections, especially in the second image Dianne, and yes I enjoyed the movie very much, it was a really lighthearted fun movie but also with a bit a message too didn't you think?

God bless you!

These are beautiful!

Great shots Dianne. There is something special about silhouettes against the muted (or fiery) tones of the skies. It's been said that "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder" - I love your positive spin on all photographic subjects. Well done!

The saltworks are also a good birdwatching spot - who would have thought something so associated with hard work could provide such pleasure!

Carola said...

The first shot is awesome.

A very Zen kind of landscape! Simple, powerful beauty - nourishment for the soul!
