Sunrise at the Bonneville Salt Flats is almost always spectacular. On the morning I shot this it had rained heavily the night before. I couldn’t believe how beautiful the morning sky reflecting on the water was. When it rains on the Salt Flats there is no place for the rain to run off so it must soak into the salt. On this particular day it was nearly noon before the water had soaked in enough for us to go out to the race course.
I processed this image in Topaz Adjust which allowed me to intensify the already magnificent colors. I try to use whatever plug-in I feel will give the most impact to my images and even though I’m a big fan of the NIK line of plug-ins I still use Topaz for some of my single frame HDR style images.
