Photographer's Note

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.
