3 Lost S Souls
Amateur Black & WhiteSomething about the picture The body of water in the picture is the Salton Sea in Southern California. This was on the South East end of the lake.
This was one of those pictures that make it so I should have the bumper sticker "I brake for pictures.". I had been in this area to visit the volcanic mud pots and found this one the way.
It was mid afternoon when I came across these trees. The sky was a thin overcast and the day had that heavy humid summer thunderstorm feel to it.
This scene struck me as iconic for the lake. To me it feels like a dead lake and this is sign on the door that says so.
I used the black and white filter to convert the color image. I purposely altered the contrast so that the sky would nearly blend into the water and the trees would stand out.
