The Salton Sea - California's largest body of water, and a tragic mistake. Tucked away deep in the Southern Californian desert, the Salton Sea is quite a peculiar place in desperate need of relief to assure the survival of its fragile ecosystem.
"The Useless Sea" takes viewers on a cinematic journey around the vast lake, proving that even in a place covered by traces of death and deterioration, there is plenty of beauty to be found everywhere. Shot on DJI Inspire 1, RED Scarlet Dragon & Canon 5D Mark III.
