This is another rice paddy photo from a different hill in Yuang Yang, China.
This area is quite mountainous with steep-sided valleys. The astonishingly beautiful scenery is made more remarkable as the sides of the mountains and valley floors are covered with rice paddies. The local minority tribes' families have fashioned the traditional sinuous clay walls by hand over generations.
Amazingly these terraces have protected the hills from much of the massive erosion problems many other deforested areas in China are undergoing.

I will respond to your kind comments as soon as I can. Thanks for dropping by!

Wow, I love the details and the patterns captured. The only thing that bothers me is the color. The photos seems too bluish :)
