Picking Rocks

Whilst exploring early morning in Lombok, Indonesia, I came across this young boy. He was dutifully picking rocks and snails from the young rice patch. The rice cultivation system in Indonesia has been perfected over the Millenia. Each growth stage of rice requires a different amount of flooding in the field. How this works, especially in the terraced fields of Bali is an incredible example of community cooperation, (and it makes for some excellent travel photography).
