Pond N1 in end-of-summer colors

    Newer Older

    I am back from Denmark and spent a pleasant afternoon yesterday down at the saltponds in the southern end of San Francisco Bay with me lads.

    Here is a relatively high shot of the pond adjacent to the Don Edward's Headquarters. In this view the pond has been largely drained. Brownish waters are (I think) the influx of water with lower salinity. The orange/red colors are (I think) residual waters of higher salinity.

      Cris, I love your shots of the salt ponds. This one is a great addition to the collection. Last spring I told you about the salt ponds we visited in June, 2004 in Peru. Here's a link to a photo, which was NOT taken from a kite. www.flickr.com/photos/19216472@N00/40306915/

      Nice one, Cris - I'm always reminded of the Mandlebrot set whenever I see these shots and this one is particularly strong.

      You're a virtuoso of KAP (something I didn't even know existed until today). I've often flown over those incredibly colorful salt pools and both wondered what they were and wanted to photograph them. Well done.

      Another fantastic shot. Thanks so much for sharing it in the microbes in the environment group.
