These are ruins in the middle of the arid plains of the Kutch District in India. The clear cobalt blue sky, the pale, dry grass, and the dried, powder-like ochre earth reflect the fact that it has not rained in this region for 4 years. To the side of the decaying mausoleum in the center stands a stone pillar, while in front lies a statue of a cow, and inside stand images of a man and a woman. Across the unending plain that is almost dizzying in scale and the silent earth, there is only the blowing of the dry wind.
