This Touareg woman is feeding her goats by shaking the branches of a tree. By doing so, she manages to have some leaves fall down to the ground so that her goats can eat it.
As you see there are no plants or grass growing on Sahara ;-). The tree (as well as the goats) are tough, dry and rigid. Not a very welcoming environment. However, the woman doing the job was very nice and friendly.

Very nice shot Krzysztof.. you managed to capture a daily life moment and you did it well. I understand that the light was very strong: some overexposure is present. But anyway a great job. I like it a lot. Well done!

Haven't yet had the time to comment all your great Niger photos...I am still dreaming of this country, especially because I am currently writing my final Master dissertation about Niger. Especially I am so shocked by the current famine there and I hope with all my heart that the situation will improve. :-( It is a shame that the media is not talking more about this scandalous disaster.
All the best, Léonie

"Not a very welcoming environment."
Yes, it may not be a paradise for us to reside, but it sure has millions of lovely faces and eyes and hearts for us to come and understand their endurance.
If I plan to make a quick visit to the refugee camps near Maradi, how do you advise me? Do I have to land Niamey first then overland transport East, or I may opt to arrive North Nigeria and cross the border. In case you have some experience and tip for me, please drop me a line. Thanks.

Interesting photo...the woman is trying to feed her goats, but the tree is not doing too well itself..all looks so fragile
