    Lake Abert is an alkali lake in southern OR. This image shows a view from shore, looking down at the layers formed as the water level lowers during the dry season...very cool stuff...very cool colors. It is an ancient lake with an interesting history. Here is the wiki link.

    I like how you captured the texture and color here. Could use some context to create scale.

    Lake Abert is one of my favourite places. A few of my family and our ancestors (Northern Paiute) live/lived in the area and in Surprise Valley to the east.

    This photo really shows the beauty in the lake's shore, the colours you don't see in non-alkali lake shores. I think the composition is interesting, even without an obvious sense of scale. At least for me, because I'm familiar with the lake, the scale isn't an issue. But I also think the mud gives any viewer a good sense of size. I'm struck at how you've pulled elements from your wood photos out of this subject. I mean, I see a lot of similarities. Pretty neat!

    Do you have any other photos of this area?

    No ****...you've been there?!? Wow...when I was there it seemed like a small hidden water body that doesn't get many visitors...very cool! I drove past it by chance during my travels across the country. I drove past many lakes...but out of the corner of my eye, something didn't look right about it. Sure enough...an alkali lake..first I've ever seen!! But the sun was BLINDING...not a cloud anywhere and at least 90 degrees. Seriously cool stuff.

    Yes, I think I have at least a couple more shots of this spot...I'll go back and look.

    Thanks for referencing my wood stuff :) ....an old friend I'm now feeling like revisiting! I have no choice....I think I have abandoned all literal perception...I see everything in abstract and wood patterns!!!
    Thanks Jaemie!
