The Salton Sea, in Californa, USA

This image was taken by deborah lattimore looking northeast over the Salton Sea in southern California. The Salton Sea, the largest lake in California, did not exist prior to 1905. In that year, flooding along the Colorado River breached a dike in California's Imperial Valley, causing the river to flow into the formerly dry basin for almost two years. This spectacular image shows the entire length of the sea, which stretches about 35 miles from end to end. The green areas to the left and right of the lake are the Imperial Valley.
