Calcified Creatures

Preserved for eternity
Nick Brandt, CALCIFIED DOVE, LAKE NATRON, 2010

Set on the banks of Lake Natron in Northern Tanzania, this body of water is shallow and has an extremely high concentration of salt and natron — which means that animals that die in its waters end up being preserved by the mineral content.” – http://www.imaging-resource.com/news/2013/10/02/photographer-nick-brandt-captures-scarily-preserved-animals-of-lake-natron
