bali #5: ubud rice terraces
here are more photos from the rice terraces in ubud. none of my photos do justice to how beautiful this place is, but i did very little retouching this time as i want to keep its originality. most of these photos are straight out of camera. i was really blown away by the view and i think i fell in love again with my home country indonesia.
can you see the people near where the houses are? (see large image here) they look really tiny because they're quite far away and this was the closest i could capture with my lens. i think that's a lookout spot where people go to see the view to the rice terraces, but thanks to our friends from abing terrace, we got the luxury to actually walk in the middle of the rice terraces. win!
left: the farmer working. right: can you spot the farmer down there, near the shack?
and this is the farmer's dog hanging out and relaxing.
it's a little muddy and slippery wearing thongs, but manageable. excuse my dry toes.
closer look at the rice field.
note the little stool and the basket inside? apparently other than the shack, the farmer can also have a little rest here.
another furry friend we met on the trekking.
natural spring water in the middle of the terraces. the one on the top left is drinkable, it was very refreshing!
a farmer's hut. this is him and this is his little pretty cow.
left: half of the way the sun came out and the light is just beautiful. right: balinese offerings.
i love capturing the sunshine reflection on the rice field.
