The Blues

Your Shot community member Jassen Todorov flew his plane through turbulent air to get this shot of an evaporation pond in Utah. “I was fascinated and attracted by these unusual shapes and bright colors,” he says. “The area is known as Potash, not far from the beautiful and picturesque town of Moab.”
