Photo from open sources

Blue fields – the unusual photoproject similar to beautiful imagination of the artist which author was the Scottish photographer Simon Butterworth.

 

The reservoirs imprinted by means of aerial photography in the west of Australia look very surreal as if it is not photos, but the watercolor pictures representing abstract patterns at all.

 

Actually pictures show ordinary artificial ponds from which the concentrated salt solution evaporates, leaving a salt harvest.

 

The salt fields reflecting a heavenly azure have been removed by the photographer from the plane at the height about 1500 meters around the abandoned city "Useless loop" (Useless Loop) that in Shark Bay (Shark Bay), the most western point of the mainland of Australia.

In search of beautiful shots Simon Butterworth has flown about all territory of the gulf covering 10 thousand km ² islands and peninsulas, but everything is useless. Only the industrial zone in the center of a picturesque natural sight was ideal for the pictorialist in all respects. He photographed salt ponds so that the blue planes were perceived by the contemplator as certain abstractions which true function doesn't reveal.
