Photographer's Note

A « salorge » is a wooden or stony house in which the salt workers store the salt before marketing it. We find it almost everywhere in the middle of swamps.
I photographed its reflection very early in the morning (another alarm clock at 6 am !) but which a beautiful light!
The small mounds of land are in clay. They are reconstructed or strengthened every year. It is them who bound the various ponds where circulates the sea water by evaporating more and more before the cristalisation of the salt in the last ponds which we call in french « oeuillets ».
