Reprocessed from a previous panorama

Image is a 27 image panorama at ISO 6400 F2.8 25s 16mm. This time I applied a gel to my flash to create a different tone. Didn't end up doing too much post processing after stitching this time. The green glow is from airglow.

Salt lake in Western Australia. Salt lakes can be caused by erosion with the minerals collecting in basins and not running off or by increase in the water table (more common here in Australia) due to land clearing for agriculture. The salinity issue causes problems with agriculture and using the land for anything else. Some businesses farm the salt.

Salt lakes change greatly throughout the year. I scouted this location out only about 3 weeks prior to the shoot and the rate of change was quite significant with more cracks and rupturing that I had to travel further into the lake to get some "cleaner" pressure ridges.
