„Salt storage cover - close-up“

from the gallery of Marjolein Katsma

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. This close-up highlights the regularity of the pattern formed by the reeds and the network of hand-made ropes that holds it together.
