BAKA PYGMIES - RAINFOREST FOG (CAMEROON)

African Rainforest & Pygmy Peoples


Rainforest fog, from Luis Devin's anthropological research in Central Africa (Baka Pygmies, Cameroon)
Mist around the trees in the tropical rainforest (Baka Pygmies, Cameroon).

"Now at the foot of the trees there is a light mist, mist and cool air even though daybreak is long past, and the smell of leaves freshly cut by the women making the huts..."
