This is a unique, verry good and interesting shot ! What can we see in this picture ? The Alvord Desert was partially overflooded that morning it seems and due to the humidity and the cilly morning, some fog developed - backlighted by the warm sun light ! Some clouds are reflected in the shallow (?) water and there is even a track of a car in the wet area and finally the sharp little silhouette of the motorized paraglider exploring the scenery and showing the dimensions ! Congratulation to this lucky shot Q !

Splendid shot. Perhaps there are too many things on it and this makes the picture less readable.
