|Nature Vs Nurture|
The is photo of the majestic Tiger Mouth Rice Terrace in Yuanyang
I was fascinated by the Rice Terrace which is constructed by bare hands one thousand years ago and is still in use today.
This is a perfect example of man in coexistent with nature and without destroying it.
This is a self sustaining ecosystem; the entire rice terrace is irrigated with spring water from the forest above
The water evaporate from the rice terrace to form cloud, the rain water is collected and trapped by the forest on the mountains, the spring water flow down to the rice terrace and the whole cycle repeats itself perpetually.
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.
WHY TIGER MOUTH?
Take a step backward and look closely at the bottom left-hand corner of the photo.
What dose it look like?
Answer Tiger Head

One of the best I've ever seen on TN. Reminds me of A. Adams! BEAUTIFUL!!!!! The textures and forms in this picture are so beautiful, and the black and white bring them out so nicely. Very, very well done.
