Salt. A Film by Michael Angus & Murray Fredericks

Just saw a great documentary on PBS this morning. This guy rode a burly mountain bike out into the middle of a salt flat with a trailer full of camping and camera gear. Pretty amazing imagery of a surreal environment.

From the film's website:
SALT is the story of award winning and internationally renowned photo-artist, Murray Fredericks on his annual solo pilgrimage to the heart of Lake Eyre in the remote north corner of South Australia. It is a piece on the personal journey of the artist, the creative process and the landscape itself.

Alone on the most featureless landscape on earth, Murray’s personal video diary captures the beauty of this bleak, empty and desolate environment – and provides the catalyst for an unexpected personal transformation.
