Entry Description

Salterns are salt-making ponds, containing saline waters and high concentrations of microorganisms, algae and bacteria. Depending on the saline content, the algae in ponds turns the water various pastel hues from green to deep red. These images were captured in North and South America from fixed wing and rotor aircraft.
