The light that I had to work with during the evening when I was photographing "Bad Water Basin" was about the worst that I could wish for.  It was totally flat and dull light.  We (other photographers) kept hoping for some beautiful light at sunset.....but it was not to be.  The salt crystal formations are still quite unique and interesting as a subject.  I hope that you, the viewer, enjoy this series in spite of the challenges that I faced in creating it !
