This was our second trip to the Salton Sea in California, so all the dead fish lining the shore were no surprise.
Since I’ve decided to only photograph beautiful things, I had to think about it twice before photographing the dead fish, but I do think they are beautiful in an odd kind of way.
They are so interesting! It probably helps that it is winter and so they don’t smell at all.
Last year I photographed close-ups of the fish, so this year I tried to make a composition that shows the enormous number of dead fish in their environment. But getting down close to the fish means you can only barely see the water.
You can find out more about the Salton Sea in the long post I wrote last year.
