Great Royaldevon 2018-02-11 11:50

Hello Gert,

Until I joined TrekEarth, I really didn't know about salt being harvested in this way. It is an interesting process and certainly makes the most interesting photographic opportunities. Last year, I photographed similar ponds in Bretagne and found that the salt production was still quite popular, very much due to the interest of tourists and that the resultant salt brings a high price in specialist shops.
You have shown clear information about the ponds and how the salt is collected. The only surprise I had was the dress of the lady. I'm not quite sure why! I suppose I expected more 'work-like clothes or shorts from anyone collecting the salt!
Again, you have achieved excellent quality from scanned photographs.

My warm regards,
Bev 😊

Default To Royaldevon: salt

Thank you Bev for your keen comments. I think salt production can be done in many different ways. I always keep a box of sea salt flakes from Exeter for "better" cooking. It's very tasty but I think the production is more modern than in this photo. As for the woman's surprising dress I am even more surprised by the man's almost obscenely small bathing-trunks.
Have a nice week,
