More Haiti pix


I love this photo. It's in Baie d'Orange. I call it Moonscape as the white volcanic rock against the red clay earth and the backdrop of fog makes it look eerie.

The soil at 4,000 feet there is fertile, but rocky, and the farmers work hard, hoeing the earth to ready it for planting. What led to the famine there was the crop failure from lack of rain, and then the four shattering hurricanes last year that wiped out what little did grow.

It is lovely, and tragic at the same time. Thanks for noticing, Gillian.
