Lake Magadi, Kenya
Part of the Rift Valley area, Lake Magadi was formed by fault subsidence. During the dry season, it is 80% covered by
sodium carbonate. These salt deposits form colourful patterns, depending on wind and wave. I waited for the right light and angle to find these patterns, viewed from a helicopter. I imagined photos with surreal patterns which with a closer look becomes a
wildlife photo. Flamingos in flight contrast beautifully with this pattern.

تشكّل بحيرة مجادي جزءاً من منطقة الوادي المتصدّع وقد تشكّلت نتيجة انخساف فالق. خلال موسم الجفاف،
يغطيها كربونات الصوديوم. تشكّل رواسب الملح هذه أنماطاً ملوّنة، استناداً إلى الرياح والأمواج. انتظرتُ الضوء والزاوية المناسبين للعثور على هذه الأنماط التي تُشاهد من طائرة هليكوبتر. تخيّلت الصّور ذات الأنماط السريالية التي تصبح عن كثب
صورةً عن الحياة البرية. يتباين منظر طيور النحام بشكلٍ رائع مع هذا النمط.
