'Finger prints of Earth': Laterite in Jiangxi Province

Aerial photos taken on July 13 in east China's Jiangxi Province present stunning views of the laterite hills in Ji'an City. The laterite is a soil type rich in iron and aluminum which give it a rusty-red coloration. The laterite here is under a treatment project that allows plants to grow on this rocky landscape.
