Photographer's Note

I took this photograph at the village of Kusamba, which is located at east of Bali, near the bat cave temple and near the region Candi Dasa, Bali. This village is well-knowned as a fisherman village and also the village of salt farmer.

In the photo, you could see that the salt farmer, was watering the ground (the sand on the beach) with sea-water. This is the first step. After that, he will put the sand in a special tool inside his hut (in this photo you could see his small hut - he lives there also, at the right part of the frame) and wash it with the sea water, until it produces a salty liquid. And then, he will put it (the salty liquid) outside, under the sun-light, to dry it and.. that's how the salt came from..

If in my previous photos of this series, it was taken during sunrise, so this time I posting a photograph taken after sunrise. I just want to share with you how this salt farmer look like (as in my last 2 photos he was in silhouette), his hat, his traditional pail,...

I have to lay on the ground in order to be able to take this shot in low angle..

PS : I put the color version of this photo in workshop.

I hope you like it.

PEACE !
