Cargill Salt Ponds

 

I love the colors of these ponds. These colors are just as you see them - I did not do anything to this image other than cropping and levels.

 

The interesting colors are from brine shrimp, algae, and other stuff growing in the ponds.

 

According to:

www.southbayrestoration.org/index.html

These ponds will be reverting back to wetlands. I'm going to miss seeing them from the air on my way into SFO.

 

For an awesome satellite image of these go to:
