The light of sunrise illuminates mountains and clouds above a watery mirror.
Despite my feelings on the profligate burning of fossil fuels, I do still enjoy a good cross-country road trip every now and then. One of my favorite stretches of highway is west of Salt Lake City, Utah where Interstate 80 crosses the southern edge of the famed Bonneville Salt Flats. One morning I awoke long before sunrise to document the transformation from starry night to brilliant day and was rewarded with a scene of indescribable and profound beauty. In addition to this and other photographs, I was able to capture some of the loveliest time-lapse footage I've ever had the privilege to bear witness to. Whenever I make a journey to be in a natural setting, unmarred by man (well, except for the Interstate Highway in this case), I always return moved and revitalized.
