Photographer's Note

The southwest of Santo Antao is a dry place. Except for the village of Taraffal de Monte Trigo, which lies close to a mountain oasis, it is a stone desert. Less than 80 mm of rain per year and flat, shadowless places mostly consisting of dark, lava stone make it a hot and harsh place to survive. I was told that this skelleton belongs to a donkey. He was too weak.
