These man-made salt formations are a distinctive feature of the landscape. These natural wetlands have been transformed by industrial salt crystallisation pans. The repetition and bright white stacks reflecting in the afternoon sun are striking against the vibrant blue skies. Strangely beautiful and somewhat alien they illustrate man’s impact on the environment.
