Photos typically include their locations, so you can use locations as keywords too. You get more hits with shorter words, and fewer hits as you become increasingly specific with increasing numbers of keywords. It’s best to use singular rather than plural (eg “volcano” instead of “volcanoes”).
As some words are included in others (“salt” within “basalt,” for example) you might want to be more specific to avoid getting a bunch of irrelevant photos.
Or you can just scroll down and see the most recently added photos… Enjoy!

Aerial view of the Salton Sea and Imperial Valley of California, view northward. The San Andreas takes a right step when it reaches the Salton Sea; transfer of the strain from one part of the fault to the other has caused the area between to be pulled apart. That area is now filled in by the Salton Sea. (100128-85)
Due to the high salinity and alkali content, Lake Albert is uninhabitable for fish. However, this environment is perfect for brine shrimp and as a result, the lake provides an excellent habitat for a variety of shore birds. (Image ID# 140621-103)
