In The Paisley Patterned Terraces At Dusk

The lone silhouette of a farmer (upper right) is haloed in gold as the December sun sets over the paisley patterns of Yunnan’s water-filled rice terraces. Following a crude napkin-drawn map from a villager, my wife and I nearly missed this scene as we got lost hiking through the mountain. We arrived on the hillside just in time for me to scramble at setting my tripod to capture the cool evening tones and reflections of golden clouds in the terraces.
