This photograph was made at the Salton Sea, a recreational area built around a lake created when overflow from the Colorado River filled a huge salt pan. It's in the dusty Imperial Valley of Southern California, not far from Palm Springs. The Salton Sea's unpredictable levels and high salinity, which led to massive fish kills, has made it virtually uninhabitable, though some still live around it. Parts of its shore have flooded, causing the abandonment of homes and trailers.
