    I can imagine the parched land when something as tiny as sweat droplets make a difference. Good use of zoom technique from the sweeping vista to the sod of earth.

    Great drought depiction. I imagined the farmer's sweat not just from the heat but from hard work, all his labouring that cannot bring rain.
