Jatiluwih, Bali, Indonesia

Around the village of Jatiluwih, rice terraces stretch from horizon to horizon. The planting is over and the harvest has yet to come, so these men must be repairing one of the paddy dikes. These agricultural landscapes are now on the World Heritage list, but a UNESCO site visit last year noted that "the pressure for land conversion remains significant." [2016]
