The Lushness of Vinales Valley

A stunning, cultural landscape in the heart of Cuba's Pinar del Río Province. With a backdrop of boulder-like hilltops and lush, green vegetation, the view of Vinales Valley literally brought a tear to my eye..it was so stunningly beautiful, that I was moved with joy. This shot was taken at the end of a day-long excursion in the Pinar province. The small farm/tobacco buildings in the center of the clearing give context to the vastness of the site...which extends to 50 square miles. A must see in Cuba!
