I like it so much, and long before I've seen some pictures kind of this, they're more beautiful, taken in different time.
This is an amazing photo and also an amazing eye opener. We take so much for granted in our lives and while doing this we forget just how much (blood, sweat and tears) as such goes into all the hard work of others for the sake of feeding a nation.
When, when, when will National Geographic return to their old format of showing the better parts of the world instead of "PRISONS", "BORDERS" , EVERY NEGATIVE PART OF THE WORLD, so the children of the world including the US see the beauty of all the things that surrounds us everywhere in the world. Leave the negative and sensational junk to the news channels. I am so tired of turning off this channel most of the time. They do offer some good broadcasting, but most of it us useless and wasted time.
This photo has already been published as the Photo of the Day...
But well I guess it's very beautiful
As I remember the rice fields of India, they look far different from these here. The vein's of water and rice are patterns man made, side by side to make a wonderous shot for John Qu. The lighting is just right, and it took a long time to 'wait for it'.Much appreciated as one more great shot. j.e.s.........
It is beautiful. I wonder how they get the fields floods that are on the sides of the hills. Looks like gravity would not allow it.

@Li Yue 非常高兴又看到自己的同胞。中国这块看似平常的土地其实掩埋着无穷的精神和智慧值得在“国家地理”上展现。我们共同努力。也感谢你的文字。
@Sunil Hettiarachchi Thank you!
@Yolanda Patterson Thank you!
@Bill Anderson Thank you!
@ideogram tianya 很高兴看到你的中文。但实在不能同意你狭隘的观点，在恶劣的生存条件下能继续生存，在残酷的自然条件下能凭着无穷的智慧改造它，这体现着这个民族的伟大和才智。我和多少老外谈及过这个话题，他们可以说99.9%的人都由衷地感到能把这块本是贫瘠的土地改造成“连上帝也想像不出”的壮美景观所需要的是毅力和智慧，它体现着这个民族的精神和才智。我很悲哀的是恰恰是我们的同胞常常流露出你这种很狭隘心绪。不过还是感谢你的文字。
