St Monans Salt Mill

The St Monans windmill stands as one of the few reminders of an industry which was once the main source of employment for the area. Salt panning may not be the most glamorous job in the world, but for 17th and 18th Century Scotland it was a vital commodity in the burgeoning trade with continental Europe.

The Forth Valley had a distinct advantage in the production of salt, having coal readily available nearby to provide heat to evaporate seawater which was collected in iron pans.

The Salt Mill here at St Monans was used to pump seawater into the iron pans. Once full, the coal was fired and the heat evaporated off the water leaving the valuable white crystals behind. It was an intensive process, as to produce one ton of salt took almost 32 tons of seawater.

Beautiful captures especially V2 and V3! I think colour versions are working better as they deliver greater details and light!

George

Of the version 1/2 or 3, I like the first. The color version is pleasing because of the nice muted light you had, this gives wonderful details. I also like the mono conversion.
