St. Barths, La Grand Saline

This view of St. Barths, La Grand Saline (2000), the salt flats on the island of St. Barths, was originally done in 1996 but I updated it in 2000. The shallow waters of the Caribbean bay are turquoise, the distant water slightly darker. Much of the Caribbean area is fairly shallow so you don't get the deep colors that the Atlantic often displays. I believe that the entire salt flat is now covered with buildings. The photo was taken in the 80's or 90's.
