This is a picture of the salt marshes at Trapani (Le Saline di Trapani) in Sicily where our Art Toscana painting in Italy guests develop their oil paintings. It is truly an inspirational place especially for artists. The salt pans have a pink hew due to the prawns that live there. This attracts flocks of flamingos that feed on them and the reason why flamingos are pink, someone told me. I am not sure whether or not that is true seeing as prawns are usually grey and go pink when cooked.
