Image Caption: The city of Orenburg lies on the Ural River south of Russia's Ural Mountains. The city is surrounded by the river floodplains, rich agricultural land , and long lines of trees (shelter belts) which were planted to break the wind. As the Russian economy changes, the large Soviet farming collectives are becoming privatized. Photography from Mir can help document the changes in land management.
