„Salt storage cover - close-up“

from the gallery of Marjolein Katsma
Description:

Near Marakkanam, just a little north of Pondicherry, there are extensive salt pans where salt is produced in shallow ponds by letting the sea water evaporate.

Harvested salt is stored in mounds, protected from rain and wandering cattle by a cover constructed of reeds and rope. Here a close-up showing the wonderful pattern formed by the reeds and a network of hand-made ropes.
