Ethiopian National Defense Forces Deploy To Abyei

by John Downey

I had the privilege of seeing off Ethiopian peacekeeping forces before deploying to the contested Abyei region that lies between North and South Sudan. Thousands of freshly-painted, bright-blue UN helmets stood in stark contrast to dark battle dress uniforms and a cold, muddy Amhara morning.

An overused technique to highlight a single color, I desaturated all except blue.
