Caption:
GA – Ogeechee River. These extensive fields just south of Savannah are steeped in history. Maybe most notable is that Darien (to the south) was burned in 1863 by the African-American 54th Massachusetts Volunteers. In the very far distance is Henry Ford's plantation. River. Clearly, nature has not been these fields' friend. – Description from photographer, David Soliday.
Description:
A digital aerial photograph depicting remnants of rice fields along the Ogeechee River, near Georgetown, GA. It features irrigation canals meandering in all directions through greenish-brown marshlands. Walker Canal can be seen prominently flowing across the center of the image, almost in a perfect line. Taller vegetation can be seen in the top, right corner, bordered by the Ogeechee River. Out in the distance, the dark blue of the Atlantic Ocean creates a faint horizon where it appears to meet the sky.
