Toon Town 9/3

I came across this interesting sight when I was in Yuanyang. This particular Village & Rice Terrace caught my attention as the color was so vibrant and unreal it looks like Disneyland Toon Town.

There is only one harvest in a year for the Yuanyang Rice Terrace; planting 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 prepared the terrace for the next season. The Hani people have repeated this for more than a thousand years.

The hush afternoon lighting brought up the color and contrast.

The color is actually a reflection of red algae floating in the terrace and the blue terrace is from the mineral in the water and reflection of the sky

I used a medium telephoto zoom to isolate and crop to a panoramic view
