'Waking before first light I throw on some clothes and grab my camera, I love being up at this time! After a short drive I arrive at the dehydrated salt lake just as dawn is breaking. I start to venture across it, the sun gradually making an appearance, incrementally rising in the distance. I am rewarded for my early start with vast, stunning skies scattered with clouds, making the light appear beautiful and warm as it intensifies. I become engrossed in my camera and then I am suddenly struck by a magical feeling of wonder and solitude. I want to bottle this up and take it home with me.'
