The Bonneville salt flats are 30,000 acres (12,000 hectares) of flat land formed from the evaporation of the Bonneville Salt Lake which dried up during the Pleistocene period, 15,000 years ago. The salt layer is potash salt, ranging from one inch to six feet in depth.
Since 1896 it has been a favourite place for high speed record setting by the fastest cars on earth.

Nice shot of the salt flats. I like how you choose to ignore the rule of thirds and put the horizon right smack dab in the middle of the shot. It really does suit the shot as the sky and the flats are the only real subjects in the shot, it works in emphasizing the contrast. One suggestion would be to maybe try Neat Image (or another noise reduction piece of software)?

Very clear and sharp. The sky is so beautiful that I would have given it more space on the photograph, and get a more standard composition. But the choice to separate the photograph into two parts is not bad either...anyway, it's a nice shot!

Le ciel, il est magnifique, pur.
Cette terre claire, ce sel, s'y oppose violemment et c'est un effet superbe.
Merci pour le partage et cette note très utile.
