Salton Sunset – heath ofee dot com

Even in the most barren and desolate locations, one can still find beauty. I spent a good deal of my time in and around the Salton Sea hunting for the most interesting urbex locations I could find, but it’s always important to keep all your photography options open. Bombay Beach was absolutely full of old, decrepit structures and I had an absolute blast shooting them, but as the sun was setting I forced myself to change gears and quickly switched into landscape mode. As a number of my photog buddies have mentioned in blogs before me, it can be valuable not to be pigeon-holed into one single genre of photography. Diversity is a good thing. Experimentation is a good thing. Always keep your thinking cap on, and be ready to switch gears whenever that next great opportunity presents itself.

  1. I’m liking this shot. In fact, I want it as a wallpaper for my laptop. I’m liking the subdued color in the sky, the fact that you caught the birds, and the glassy surface of the water. This brings back so many memories of going fishing with my grandfather in the early morning hours and late evening hours. Now I need a boat and fishing pole again.

  2. Great shot, Heath. I think what makes the image work so well for me are the rocks and how they just lead the eye through the image. Plus, it just gives off a sense of peace.
