The View From Your Airplane Window

San Francisco Bay, 1.50 pm. “A water treatment plant, I think.” Update from a reader:

Actually, these are the famous salt evaporation ponds near Redwood City, used to manufacture a significant quantity of America’s industrial salt.  The different colors come from the different amounts and types of algae which thrive in each pond according to its level of salinity.  An amazing sight on the way into SFO!
