Terraced farming is common in the foothills of the Himalaya. Although only a small part of the country can be cultivated, food production is the basis of the livelihood for most Nepalis. These terraced farms, that often sit under towering mountain peaks, demonstrate the ingenuity and hard work of these wonderful, kind people.

The lovely pattern in this terraced hillside makes a fabulous subject for a photo. The small buildings are nicely positioned in the frame and can I see a person tending the green crops? Excellent sharpness and exposure - very well done.

Amazing how every available piece of land is used, and a beautiful view from high perspective over the terraces.
Light and clarity immaculately collected, the lone house and barns tell much about those farmers daily life.
A fine photojob done.
Have a nice weekend,
