Winter Morning in Yuanyang

There is only one harvest in a year for the Yuanyang Rice Terrace; planting season is from March to Oct/Nov every year.

During winter to early spring, the empty rice is filed with spring water from the forest above to rejuvenate and to prepare the terrace for the next season.

The Hani people have repeated this for more than a thousand years.

As the terrain is very hilly, the moisture is trapped in between the valleys in the cold winter and spring morning. The fog started to move up when the sun is out and when the temperature start raising

No, this is not another TSUNAMI

When first arrange the photo, it gives me the impression that the tsunami / huge waves had stricken and flooded the entire area.

This photo was taken in the morning between 930am to 10 am when the temperature hot up and the fog begin to rise and eventually evaporated in mid day.

You can see from to top of this photo that the flinch of the fog is overexposed due to the sun shining on it

Hi Tony,

What fabulous patterns the terraces make. I've loved your last two posts. I suppose if you wanted to give up on the tsunami idea you could crop off the overexposed part of the clouds. That would make a beautiful photograph too.

Rightly titled. The photograph stunns me. Brings me back the memories of my trekking days in the Himalayas.

Hi Tony,
Intersting phoot with all the rice terraces. The rolling cloud gives it all a moody scene. Great reflection in the terace but a pitty that it is all a little dark and that the top part of the cloud is OE.
But, still a great POV.

:-) tomorrow

So amazing. I, like you, really really love clouds. They are so free, and so alive. I think making this picture in black and white would really add to it. It hardly has any color as it is, anyway.
