This is a worker at the salt mines of Maras, Perú. There is an underground flow that brings saline waters that they pour in this ponds that they live to dry on the sun and then collect the salt. It is believed they've been doing it from Inca's times. The different colors of the ponds reflect the different moments they've been filled, the newer brown, the older and dryer blue. I took the shot from the top of the stairs you have to climb down to arrive there.

Welcome to the most addictive site in cyberspace. You have made a very good debut with this unusual shot, making the separate ponds of saline water into a backdrop for the worker. The colors are all compatible and complementary.

¡Bienvenida a TrekEarth! Tu primera foto es muy fuerte. Me gusta mucho el punto-de-vista, mirando hacia abajo. Los cuadros de sal crean un diseño muy interesante, y el hombre añade un "human touch" a la escena. Have fun here!!

Welcome to TE. Your first photo is excellently composed. The ponds have formed a very interesting and attractive pattern of matching colours and the man fits perfectly into the composition. You have also placed him weill on the side, facing the centre of the photo. I would call this a photo of great artistic value.

From the thumbnail, i thought this was the picture of a guy painted on some cobblestones :)
Great texture of salt mines, the colors are not bright but still fantastic. And the miner is in a perfect place in the combo, whereas his hat adds a particular charm to the mix of different elements in there.
