The new blog header comes from Cris Benton's eerily alien aerial photos of a California salt pond. QUICK... someone grab the tequila, lime, and a blood pressure kit!!!!
As stated by the artist:
These are photographs taken during a first excursion to Salt Pond E6B in an area near the ruins of the 19th Century Ohlsen Salt Works just north of Alameda Creek.
I am taking these documentary photographs under a Special Use Permit from the California Department of Fish & Game. Kite flying is prohibited over the E Ponds without a Special Use Permit as is access to this part of the Eden Nature Preserve.
