Photographer's Note

An idyllic picture, a small church among orchards. But this is a seeming idyll, the owners of these orchards have a serious problem: bees pollinating these trees are dying out (Colony Collapse Disorder).
There are many reasons: pesticides, fertilizers, viruses, parasites, environmental pollution.
It is difficult to imagine these orchards without bee buzzing and without fruit on the trees.
