The Salt Palette

Salt pans are perfect foraging grounds for waders who utilise its narrow embankments for nesting. An aerial shot of an abandoned salt pan shows how these wading birds disrupt the discoloured waters to create what looks like beautiful abstract art from up above. The colour in the water is due to a high density of pigment cells caused by a rapid increase in algae population.
