Photo of the week, December 21st

Whilst many parts of the world experience a white blanket of snow at this time of the year; much of Ghana is experiencing the blackened blanket of post dry season bush fires. The birds, as well as the people, looking at what is left and counting their losses. The dryness of the harmattan after the lush growth from the many rains this year has provided plenty of 'fuel', and the fires appear to have burned hotter and longer than usual. Let us all hope for some heavy dews and early light rains to kiss the fire-seared ground, releasing the green shoots of renewal to feed the livestock and give us all a promise of a better 2012.
