Spain’s Cádiz Bay was photographed by a microlight pilot on 29 January 2009 during research on coastal vegetation by the University of Cadiz. “The intricate network of channels and creeks contrasts with the regular shapes of transformed saltmarsh (right of picture),” writes Edward P. Morris, who submitted the photo to the Sentinel-2 ‘Colour vision’ photo competition. “Transformation for salt production began with the Romans, but in recent years has declined. Once up-keep of seawalls stops, nature begins to shape the marsh again (lower right).”
This photo received an honourable mention in the ‘Colour vision’ photo competition.
