Photographer's Note

Vinales Valley is the finest example of a karst valley in Cuba, where mogotes, knolls with rounded tops and steep slopes, contrast harmoniously with the flat surface of the valley where they stand.

Traditional techniques are still in use for agricultural production, particularly of tobacco.
Each farmer is given a quota with 90% of the crops being bought by the government. The final 10% remains with the farmer for personal use, local sales/exchanges or making and selling cigars to the tourists who visit.
