Ninh Diem is an interesting place to visit for its salt fields. Women do the back breaking work of carrying heavy laden baskets full of salt. They work relentlessly from before sunrise to sunset under the scorching sun.

This second photo of a series shows the beautiful landscape around the salt fields. The versions are about some aspects of the work (putting the salt in the baskets and carrying the salt to a salt mount).

I agree here Jean-Noel. These ladies appear to be working to a routine that has scarce changed since biblical times-- and how happy they seem Teach all of us a thing or two.GrinGrinGrinGrinGrin

V1 sets the scene well, though V3 is my favourite this time.
