The photographer Matthias Heiderich keeps it simple with his captures of the large potash dump in Germany. The area is a place where manufactured salts from mining are dumped around the vast landscape.

Heiderich captures beauty in this giant dumping ground, where cloudy skies and rolling blue hills peer from over the rocks and salt. The salt and the clouds also complement one another as they create a never-ending view of the landscape. Machinery is captured from far away where the sand and the sky take over, the machinery becoming insignificant in the shot. Small trailers are photographed, where they too, are swallowed up by the sand.

Photographer Matthias Heiderich manages to create a serene landscape series where a not-so-beautiful operation takes place. The photos are even frame-worthy, allowing us to draw beauty from the unexpected.
