Salton Sea – Cafe

Well, I think this series is finally coming to a close. I should be able to squeak out one more image for tomorrow to finish things up on a Friday, but from here on out you probably won’t see any more from the Salton Sea area processed in the same fashion as what you’ve seen this week. I have quite a few sets of brackets from the area that I want to process as HDR and stylize a bit differently than this series.

One thing I learned during my trip to this area is that you never know what location will provide you with amazing photographic opportunities. I spent a good amount of time looking through photos of the Salton Sea on Flickr before I left, and the one place I was most excited about visiting was Bombay Beach. While I did get some great shots there, I found quite a few other unexpected locations that yielded some pretty amazing photographs. So make sure you don’t have blinders on when visiting a new location. Keep your eyes open because you never know what hidden gems can be found if you just take your time.

I have really enjoyed this series. This is no exception. I would love to hear more about your processing. Any chance you could fill me in. I love the warmth of the sterility if that makes sense?

Take care Heath!

Really great simple minimal image Heath. I love your style of processing and composition.

Another fun shot Heath. I’m really enjoying this series!

This is a classic shot! This series makes me feel like I’m in an old movie shot in a ghost town or something similar. Fantastic stuff Heath!

Great series Heath!

Great Shot Heath! I’m still really enjoy your “Salton Sea” series. Keep them coming!

Love the simplicity here. I think the empty sky is working to your advantage with this. I’ll miss the series…

I’ve enjoyed this series, thanks. There have been a couple in it which I think I would have liked in HDR, and this one would certainly be interesting with the sign and the faded text running across the side – I’m looking forward to seeing how they turn out from this location.

Great lines on this photo! I really like the simplicity.

nice composition and very true words – you have to have your photo head on when you go out with the camera in hand.

I’m enjoying this set – really like the consistent processing you’re applying.
