VIETNAM #202

By JN_CHATELAIN_PHOTOGRAPHY
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 to a big salt mound where where they empty the baskets. Itís a relentless back and forth journey from before sunrise to sunset under the scorching sun.

Youíll more photos of those amazing and courageous women over the next few days/weeks.

Two of the best from this fascinating set so far, Jean-Noel, V.1 in particular is so well timed and captured with those grand reflections. Carol

Two cracking images, and I will echo Carols thoughts by say that they are the best by far...

These are both remarkable.
Makes one think twice before passing the salt shaker!
