Burning fields in a golden landscape.

Recently in Makkari Village the sight of burning fields could be seen across the landscape.
The dried grasses and straw are burned and then the ash is returned to the soil, killing pests and acting as a fertilizer.
The sight of smoke against the setting sun was magnificent!
* Please remember that burning household waste is against the law, so please don't try to copy this photo!
