Beautiful Aerial Photographs Of San Francisco's Salt Lakes
Some photographers choose to rent expensive helicopters in order to gain
access to the beautiful aerial views that lie beneath where as photographer Cris
Benton chooses another method, by using a radio controlled camera that is
attached to a kite. Forget helicopters and forget drones. He might be on to
something good here.
Not knowing much about the South Bay landscape, I was struck by the wonderful
variety of colors and textures associated with the salt ponds. This was fun
territory to photograph,
Planning what the photographs look like before hand, Cris has to use his
imagination as once the camera is up in the sky he cannot see the photos he is
taking. In this series of photographs titled
he explores some 15,000
acres of salt ponds located in the South Bay of San Francisco.
