Cuban Cigars

The best cigar tobacco leaf in the world is grown in Cuba’s Vinales Valley, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and Cubans consider cigar rolling an art form.

  1. LOL on the closing quote Ron. I’d love your post more if I didn’t hate cigars so much! But you’ve captured them (as you do everything) beautifully

    1. Cubans, as one might expect, love their cigars and that includes many women. Thanks Tina.

  2. Fantastic mood, shadows and colors with this series…there is something special about the smell of cigars after a good meal, and Twain says it perfectly!

    1. I am not much of a cigar smoker, but I have to agree with you and Twain. Thanks, Randall.

  3. Great photography in this work, Ron.

  4. Awesome photos, but I don’t like the smell of burnt tobacco.

    1. I am not a smoker and don’t particularly like the smell either. But with Cubans it is a part of their culture and I find it all very interesting. Thanks Cardinal.
