Living in the province of Yunnan , I have spend the last 3 years to shoot these wonder made by human being and capture it beauty at the right season . every time the feeling is never the same as well the mood of the pictures depending of the weather and lighting . Hani Rice Terraces, covers 16,603-hectares in Southern Yunnan. It is marked by spectacular terraces that cascade down the slopes of the towering Ailao Mountains to the banks of the Hong River. Over the past 1,300 years, the Hani people have developed a complex system of channels to bring water from the forested mountaintops to the terraces.
