Pacujawi means “buffalo race”. Taken in West Sumatra, Indonesia, farmers hold the race in the rice fields, usually before the farming season. They believe it is lucky if their buffalo wins the race. The event is a celebration for the rice farmers in the farming community. The jockeys ride a pair of buffalo while holding their tails and will bite the buffalo’s tail if they want it to run faster.

James Duckworth   A nice action shot with lots of detail. I'm drawn to the man's face and then explore the other detail only to return to the anguish the man is feeling.
