Utah’s Great Salt Lake

April 09, 2021


Photographer: Patrick Wiggins
Summary Author: Patrick Wiggins

As I’m based out of Salt Lake City, Utah, I often fly my small
Cessna airplane around Utah’s Great Salt Lake and am always on
the lookout for scenes that strike my fancy. In this case, it was how
clouds and blue sky reflected off of the surface of the lake
that on this day appeared to be smooth as glass. The island in the
distance is Stansbury Island. Owing to the low lake level in
recent years, it’s become more of a peninsula than an island. In the
foreground are evaporation ponds used to extract salt. Photo
taken on January 17, 2021.
