Shores of the Salton Sea | Kodak 400TX 120

Created in a seemingly biblical situation in 1905, the Colorado River burst through a canal during a flood, its contents spilling into the desert of California for two years, until the Army Corps of Engineers were able to block the overflow. The result was the Salton Sea, with a shoreline circumference of over 100 miles. The salinity, which is always on the rise, makes it uninhabitable for most fish, but certain species thrive, and wash up on shore in droves.
