Incredible Images of the Great Salt Desert

  • Posted by SHFT on November 25, 2011 in Photography
  • For our money, there's nothing like some good satellite or aerial photography to shift our perception of this planet we call home. Looking like abstract paintings, these images offer stunning views of the arid landscapes in Iran's largest desert, the Dasht-e Kavir, or Great Salt Desert. The word kavir is Persian for salt marsh. The essentially uninhabited zone -- covering an area of more than 29,730 square miles -- is a mix of dry streambeds, desert plateaus, mudflats and salt marshes.
