Sea Salt by the Seashore

Sea salt paddies, on the far southern tip of La Palma in the town of Fuencaliente, Canary Islands (Isla Canarias). Sea water is pumped up from the ocean below and allowed to evaporate from these shallow pools carved out of the lava rock. Then, two elderly gentlemen "harvest" the salt into piles and bag it for sale and shipping.
