Pictures of the Year: A Picture and its Story
X-Raid's driver Orlando Terranova and co-driver Bernardo Graue drive over a sand dune during Stage 2 from Pisco to San Juan de Marcona at the 2019 Peru Dakar Rally, in Pisco, Peru, January 8, 2019. Reuters Photographer Carlos Jasso: "The Dakar Rally is a race like no other, a two-week long endurance challenge across Peru in some of the harshest terrain and conditions on Earth. The event spanned thousands of kilometres with motorcycles, cars and trucks racing across vast deserts and towering dunes, from the Andes to the shores of the Pacific Ocean. As a photographer, I had good access with the helicopter. I wore a harness attached to the helicopter, with the door open in order to shoot. I like the abstract images best -- the detail created by a motorcycle accelerating, the sand thrown up and combined with beautiful light so that it looks almost like a wave. You must have the camera exposures pre-set to be ready for the action, but the light is constantly shifting as clouds move across the sky. You point the camera and expose for the highlights and hope the vehicle comes into the frame and drives between the shadows of the clouds. You start reading the dunes ahead of reaching them. 'Now itÕs beautiful golden light, IÕm going to shoot a landscape.' Or 'Now there are great shadows, IÕm going to play with that.' Everything can change so quickly. Every choice you make is a gamble - the exposure you set, the dune you choose to climb." REUTERS/Carlos Jasso/File Photo SEARCH "POY STORIES 2019" FOR THIS STORY.

This year's event, finishing in Lima on Thursday, spanned thousands of kilometres with motorcycles, cars and trucks racing across vast deserts and towering dunes, from the Andes to the shores of the Pacific Ocean.

The Wider Image: Along the U.S. - Mexico border fence
Building a wall along the U.S.- Mexico border has been a contentious subject in this year's U.S. presidential election. In parts of California and Arizona, a wall already exists. It runs across rocky deserts, flowing sand dunes and miles of agricultural land. The wall splits towns and families, marking a boundary between two countries that used to be one. Busy land ports of entry and signs written in both Spanish and English attest to an interdependence that still exists in the bifurcated cities, faded mining towns and eccentric art outposts that punctuate the arid landscape. The border between Mexico and the United States spans some 2,000 miles between San Diego, California and Brownsville, Texas. REUTERS/Mike Blake SEARCH "U.S.-MEXICO FENCE" FOR THIS STORY.

A dried-up river can be seen next to sand dunes and salt pans in outback Australia in this aerial picture taken on December 13, 2015. Funding and job cuts at Australia's climate change research body could undermine its goal of dominating the growing Asian premium food market by placing farmers at a disadvantage to U.S. and European competitors, says a former head of the body. Australia's extreme weather means farmers rely heavily on climate change forecasts from the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) to mitigate the impact of bushfires, cyclones and droughts.

Over half of Australia lies above the Tropic of Capricorn, but it is home to only five percent of the population. It is a frontier land with little infrastructure, populated by cattle barons, crocodile hunters and aboriginal tribes. Geologists say the Northern Territory, which is the size of South Africa, has abundant diamond, gold and uranium reserves. However, a fifth of the Northern Territory is owned or controlled by aboriginal groups and many Aborigines have joined environmentalists to discourage mining. Picture taken July 15, 2013.
