In Bangladesh the rice mill workers start their day at the break of dawn.

 

 

While a group of workers boiled the rice another carry and spread the rice outside of the mill to dry under the sun.

 

 

 

 

 

The drying process consists of raking the rice out and then sweeping the rice back.

 

 

 

 

 

The steam smoke deriving from the rice boiling combine with the first light of the day creates a very dramatic atmosphere.
