All Is Lost

I got the privilege to shoot at Salton Sea, and its beautiful scenery. The thing that actually intrigued me the most is the history of this place. Once a beautiful town, now deserted and alone. Agriculture in the area decided that 30 years ago they would store water for all of the crops in the surrounding area. What ended up happening is they flooded out the entire area surrounding it and all of its small towns. Now all you see is ruins and dead fish skeletons all over the beach. Crazy what a few people’s decision making can do to entire communities.
