Tumbleweed, Bonneville Salt Flats

Photograph by John Burcham, National Geographic

A tumbleweed is captured in midair over Utah’s Bonneville Salt Flats.

Photo Tip: If you do a lot of flash or fill flash photography, use a battery pack for your electronic flash unit. It stores considerably more power than the AA batteries used in most units. You’ll get a lot more flashes and you won’t have to wait as long for the flash to recycle.
