Perfect Shot: Salt Marshes

What looks to be an otherworldly landscape is actually the drying mud flats of Ravenswood Slough, sitting between Facebook’s Menlo Park headquarters and the Dumbarton Bridge. Formerly Cargill Salt industrial salt ponds, this area is now part of the largest tidal wetland restoration project on the West Coast. This Perfect Shot was captured by Tom Wagenbrenner from the perspective of a single-engined Cessna 172 piloted by Stein Laxo.
