16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Searching for Water, Niger.

This photo was taken in the Maradi Region in Niger. I was visiting several different mobile communities in the area when I spotted a small oasis with plenty of cows. Then I realized there was a well, and tried to align with donkeys pulling rope with buckets to collect water. And here we go, you can easily note the effort of the animals in carry out their duty. Water is gold.
