A shepherd guides alpacas and llamas back toward home in Botadero de Rumiyana, in the hills above Cerro de Pasco, Peru. In the background is a large pile of mine tailings which is growing daily. The pile now covers fields and a lagoon which were previously used by the shepherds for their animals. Farther in the background is the city of Cerro de Pasco and the open-pit mine run by Volcan in the center of the city.
