Photographer's Note

This is a shot of the salt mines in Bonaire. I was really impressed by the pink color of the water and like the colors here, the blue sky inthe background and the snow white salt piles.

"Bonaire's old salt-mining industry has been re-activated in recent years. With a comfortably dry climate and steady trade winds (the very conditions that have made it a windsurfing mecca), Bonaire has long been recognized as an ideal locale for the production of salt. For over three centuries, the island's culture and prosperity was dependent upon this most important of the world's spices. Salt is still produced on Bonaire, though the stunning salt beds of Pekelmeer are also home to one of the hemisphere's great populations of flamingoes."
