Trapani, Sicily. October, 2015

A principal industry here in the northwest of Sicily is salt production. And nowhere more than in Trapani. We were mesmerized watching these salt flats near the town's main port. Sections are flooded with sanitized water and left to evaporate in several stages. Then, when the salt is ready to harvest, that little train you see in the photo heads out to be loaded with what will become, after further processing, the final product.
