Photo and caption by Chakarin Wattanamongkol

This shot was taken from a car as I was traveling to a temple at the foot of the Qi Lian mountain, Mati Si, near Zhangye city - one of the interesting city on China's Silk Road. I was impressed with beautiful scenery of this fertile landscape that surrounding by desert. I also surprised with rice straws dried on a rural highway, they were colorful and exotic. I did not hesitate to hold my camera all times on the slow moving car to shoot the life of farmers along this road.

Location: Zhangye, Gansu, China
