Salt of the earth

Shark Bay, Western Australia

These salt crystallising ponds are located within the Unesco World Heritage Site of Shark Bay in the curiously named Useless Loop. But far from being useless, some 74 square km of ponds cultivate the salt we eat in our food, as well as creating some of the most incredible artistic patterns you will ever see from the air.

The different colours are formed by microorganisms, with the algae changing colour as the level of salinity increases in each pond.
