GA – Altamaha River. Darien, GA is rich in history. During the 1850's, 2800 enslaved African Americans worked these fields. The town was burned by the MA 54th calvary. Also, I-95 cuts through these fields - 75,000 cars a day. –Description from photographer, David Soliday.
Description:
A digital aerial photograph taken along the Altamaha River in Georgia. The Altamaha occupies much of the left of the image and is separated from Butler River by Butler Island, which is recognizable by the symmetrical shapes left over in the landscape from vestigial rice fields. Motor vehicles can be seen passing by on N Walton Street and Interstate 95, both of which run through Butler Island.
