Salt Flats of Death Valley

White salt deposits with an aqua blue green sky. Wow. The artist in me feels the beauty I’m standing in front of, but the scientist in me wants to know the answer to how that could happen? At the end of the day I have to realize that I haven’t had all things revealed to me, so factually I don’t know. And the human being in me, the little fellow on my right shoulder, not the left, whispers in my ear “who cares, it’s stunning, just let it fill your soul!” I had to shush him, he was talking too much.
