no this are Pinsgroves that is why the province is Pinar del Rio,(pine grove near the river) this are the small and thin pines of the region. This is not sugar cane

I think Mabut is right. it looks to me these are the blossom of the sugar cane, called "guin" , ("guines" in plural),they look like christmas treetops, this picture seems was taken from above of the sugar cane plantation

Thanks for your opinion Leo. I frankly cannot be sure, but besides the blossom, the rest of the plant was looking like sugar cane. This pic was taken in December, and I don't know whether sugar canes are blossoming in this month...

haballi. Im positive this is a sugar cane filed seen from above. As I explained before, the pinetree shape are the "Guines" the blossom of the sugar cane. If you have a closer look you may see the cane elongated and sharp leaves under the blossom. Also as Mabut stated above, the pic was taken on December, right the peak of the sugarcane sweetness an the peak of the harvest. I have walked hard among cane fields from Pinar del Rio through Oriente were my uncles had sugar cane plantations. I also have seen growing little Pine Trees in plantations in Pinar del Rio, at the hills of Alturas de Pizarras, and definitely dont look like the picture.
