A village man stands on the side of the road on top of a man-made mountain of waste.

At an elevation of 3,100 - 3,140 meters driving down the mountains of Dashanbao in China a villager stands on the side of the road on top of a man-made mountain of waste. I remember that it all happened in an instant. When I first saw this man my guide was driving so fast through the narrow dirt roads that I didn't get the chance to get my camera ready. Luckily, later that day my guide had to drive down the same road and there he was. Still standing on the same place I saw him an hour before.
