The Wider Image: Australia's drought - the cancer eating away at farms
From ground level, Australia's drought looks like a featureless, brown dustbowl, but from the air it transforms into an artistry of colour and texture as the land cracks under a blazing sun. Circular dry plough tracks resemble the concentric circles in Aboriginal dot paintings that tell of an ancient mythology, starving cattle queuing for feed look like an abstract painting and their black shadows stretching across the land a surrealist image. The worst drought in living memory is sweeping parts of eastern Australia, leaving farmers struggling to cope and many asking questions about the future. A quarter of Australia's agricultural production by value is grown in New South Wales (NSW) and the state government has offered more than A$1 billion in emergency funding to farmers. It announced the latest tranche - A$500 million - on July 30. The Australian Bureau of Meteorology says parts of Australia experienced the second-warmest summer (December-February) on record and have just been through one of the driest and warmest autumns (March-May) on record. And the dry spell, which has left more than 95 percent of NSW in drought, according to Department of Primary Industries, has no end in sight.

A view of a country house or "dacha" in the Ozero housing cooperative by lake Komsomolsk some 130 km outside St. Petersburg, in this picture taken January 11, 2014. Four years before he become Russia's president, Vladimir Putin built himself a lakeside cottage in woodland outside St Petersburg. He has come a long way since then. So too have some of the friends who were his neighbours in the gated community by Lake Komsomolsk, named after the Communist Party's youth wing. Three of the eight founding members of the Ozero (Lake) housing cooperative that was set up to manage the dachas were targeted in the latest round of U.S. sanctions on Thursday over Russia's annexation of Ukraine's Crimea region. The U.S. Treasury Department specifically mentioned the Ozero link to Putin in a statement explaining the sanctions, which imposed visa bans and asset freezes on some of his inner circle. The message is not only that Putin should change tack over Crimea. It is also that the political system he has built - concentrating power in the hands of a powerful president - is at best faulty, at worst corrupt.
