Happy Diwali to my Indian friends!
Standing on the Great Rann of Kutch. The rann is a salt desert/marsh, and is usually (in winter) a dazzling white plane of salt, stretching as far as the eye can see.
Given that I visited Kutch in monsoon season (August) the rann had been tranformed into a shallow sea, perfect to just dip ones toes into. The rann covers a huge area (7,500 square kilometers) and spans the border between Kutch, Gujarat and Sindh, Pakistan.
The salt harvested from here counts for up to 76% of salt harvested in India, and salt farmers work in incredibly hot and harsh conditions to achieve that.
