Every Day is a Winding Road

U.S. Army paratroopers and Afghan soldiers move along a riverbed during a foot patrol in Afghanistan’s southern Ghazni province. This photo was taken on May 8, 2012. It is included in a Defense Department retrospective, the Year in Photos 2012.

We were looking for something different for this week’s FriFo and we were taken by the arid imagery and curving composition of this photo. Please click on the photo to get the full effect.

The U.S. paratroopers are with the 82nd Airborne Division’s 1st Brigade Combat Team. They’re based at Forward Operating Base Arian near the village of Askarkot on Highway 1. Here’s a link to their Facebook page.
