The `Colors of Nature` reveals the shapes and tones of San Francisco Bay, an incredible creation of our environment, that can`t been seen when you are walking at sea level.Two years ago, when I first arrived in San Francisco, the first thing that I noticed from the airplane was the Salt Ponds with their unusual colors and forms. A few months later I flew over them in a small airplane and they were even more amazing from a lower altitude. I saw such a different shades of red, green and yellow, I saw colors that I have never seen before, and that I have not seen since on the ground. I liked the different lines and shapes that the water has formed in the dry salt areas. In order to make the images abstract, I used a telephoto lens to fill the frame with these interesting lines and curves. The presence of various algae and bacteria makes the colors of these evaporation ponds vivid all by themselves therefore I did not manipulate the colors.
I have made many photo flights over the area since then and every time I discover something new and exciting that I hadn’t seen before. This area is a restoration project, and the restoration process constantly changes the look of the ponds. My plan is to expand my portfolio by following the changes in this environment and look for new shapes and forms in this part of the bay.
