Caption: Salt extraction plant. Aerial view of the Salinas del Janubio salt extraction plant on the coast of Lanzarote, Spain. This plant extracts salt from sea water by solar evaporation: the sun's rays cause the water to evaporate, leaving only solid sodium chloride (salt) behind. The salt collects in the rectangular salt pans (lower frame). From here it is collected and sold.
