Mirror in a Lake

Bookmarked Saltscapes: Mirrors Reflect the Sky in an Australian Salt Flat Lake (Colossal)

Since 2003, Australian photographer Murray Fredericks has made at least twenty journeys to the center of Lake Eyre, a desert lake with an extremely high concentration of salt. Fredericks drags all of his equipment out into the barren landscape, capturing the dramatic sky reflected in both the inch-deep water.

I often find myself more interested in technique than output for all manner of creative work, from art to creative entrepreneurship.

The resulting photos from this series by Murray Fredericks feel very 80s in their pastel toned geometric rendered perfection. I like this starscape even though it feels fake.
