Associated Press photojournalist Kevin Frayer recently sent out a group of stark black-and-white aerial images that show the rugged, inhospitable terrain of the province. Frayer made the images while flying in a medevac helicopter from the U.S. Army’s Task Force Shadow “Dust Off”, Charlie Company 1-214 Aviation Regiment.
