Aerial Photos of Western Australia Salt Flats For Canon

There Is Something Very Extraterrestrial About These Salt Flats in WA

No, this isn't photographic evidence of life on another planet, but rather aerial shots of the salt flats of Useless Loop, a town in the middle of Shark Bay World Heritage Site, Western Australia. Contrary to its name, Useless Loop is an industrial town responsible for extracting tonnes of world-class salt from its seventy square kilometres of evaporation ponds. A lot of that delish salt finds its way to the country's top restaurants, so foodies, take note!

The stunning aerial shots were taken by photographer Peter Franc, as part of Canon Australia's Down Under From Above series. Franc wanted to capture the "therapeutic emptiness," of the landscape and knew he had to take to the skies. Even thought the shots look like something taken from a satellite, they were actually taken from a tiny petrol-powered aeroplane.

Scroll to take in the stunning shots, it might just rekindle your inner photographer.
