This photograph shows a small village in Longshen called pingan. We arrived late and were unaware of the events of which were about to unfold. The town has its own.festival which celebrates the start of planting of the rice terraces. We had climbed a mountain of winding pathways and stairs to reach the top, and took a break at the top. At 6:30 the locals started lining the pools of water with thousands of tealight candlea. The terraces stretch as far as the eye can see! As it got darker more locals began accumulating at the top of the mountain in the tiny little village... We knew something must be going on but didnt know what. We set up our tripods to photograph the sun going down and the tea lights, after some time the sky miraculously lit up with fireworks- the show was unexpected and amazing!
