On the drive to California I stopped near the border of Utah and Nevada to see the Bonneville Salt Flats, where Bonneville Speedway is located. Several land speed records have been set there, as it's a vast expanse of flat salt ideal for high speeds. I photographed the long road that takes you there.

When I flew to the the United States I had this kind of picture in my mind. So when I actually got to drive there (Death Valley, California), this was the image that I always wanted to shoot. So I got out of the car with easily over 125 degrees Fahrenheit, kneeled down and shot it. It was hot but certainly worth it!
