Winnowing the Rice


The crop of hard work.
It was like the whole village gathered together here on the public courtyard of the village to bring in the crop, threshing it and winnowing.

Afterwards this crop goes to the mill to be pealed and the farmer buys his pealed rice back again for his own use, no they don't eat unpealed cooked rice here, never seen it.

She was in the middle of all attention while the chaff was flying around, I had to keep my mouth shut and clean my camera afterwards from dust :)).

other sizes: small medium original
