Not rust, but salt

I am learning about salt in the FutureLearn course on Exploring our Oceans this week, and we were provided with this link to fantastic photographs of volcanoes, such as the one below -
Like in a coral reef, yellow ridges of salt rise to the surface of the blue lake (Dallol, Ethiopia).

  2. Salt after rust ... How very appropriate. Those colours are amazing!

  3. Yes, Marja-Leena and Margaret, the photography and the original landscapes are quite stunning.

  4. An amazing image - the forms and the colours are stunning. A course worth signing up for after I've finished with my course on modern art. I will definitely think about it next year

  6. Olga, did you watch the BBC programme on Anselm Kiefer? I thought it might be just a repeat of the RA exhibition, but there was so much more.... I was, yet again, awed. I would love to go to his studio compound, it's so unfortunate that one can't. I was so envious of the select few who were allowed in, particularly as having been to enough exhibition openings I know that people never look at the art at such events - what a waste!

  7. Eirene, I have recorded the programme and will watch it soon. I know about Kiefer's place in France. He is a great artist indeed.
