Seaweed Farmers of Xiapu

Seaweed farmers in Fujian province of China use bamboo sticks strategically placed in mudflats to dry sea weed. At high tide these mud flats get flooded, which in return creates a very unique landscape. During my stay in China, I had the opportunity to see one of them. It was a stunning view to say the least.
