Nice aerial. My favorite part is the bottom third. I like the contrast of the dark and light colors.

aha, that just about has to be the salt ponds near SF. very cool stuff. it's actually not the soil that's colored (assuming I'm seeing what I think I'm seeing), it's algae in the water of different colors depending on the level of saltiness.

I didn't really get a sense of the scale of this until I noticed the towers on the left of the frame.

abstractly nice.

the water's acting more as a reflective surface than a transparent surface, imo. love the lines and colors in this photo.
