Photographer Benoit Falardeau, from Montreal, Quebec, recently took a trip to the western United States, and came back with these impressive shots of the Lake Powell area in Utah. From high above, the textures of the landscape become beautifully abstract, in some ways taking on the appearance of a painting. I love the depth of colors shown here; they give off the feeling that they could have been taken of Mars.
