A Voodoo practitioner raises her arms in prayer during the annual Saut D'eau Voodoo festival in Haiti.

A woman raises her arms in prayer to the spirits beneath the falls at Saut D'eau, during the annual Voodou pilgrimage held there, on July 15, 2008. The pilgrimage, made by Voodou practitioners and Catholics alike, originated with the sighting of the likeness of the Virgin Mary on a palm leaf close to the falls half a century ago. Catholism and Voodou practices are forever intertwined in its Haitian form.
