More Paddy Fields


I like taking photographs of paddy fields. Above photo was taken at Kumbaloluwa village off Nittambuwa. Every paddy field has its unique beauty. You can compare above with paddy fields of Etanwela, Mellawa and Ampara to see this difference.

I think it's the yellow flowers that make this picture even more attractive... :) Personally my favourite paddy fields would be the endless stretches of them from the East... they're breathtaking! :) Good capture K!

Is it not properly maintained ? I see an entire section of weeds. Great picture:)

There is a collection of trees in the middle of the paddy field, is it a Sri Lankan thing

Chavie,
My favorites are the ones in the hill country - The terraced paddy fields.
But I was quite amazed when I saw vast paddy fields of East, for the first time.
Yes that yellow flower does make the picture more attractive!

Gadgetgirl,
Yep, my favorite color is green and I too love this type of lush greenery.

Yes, one part seems to be bit neglected.
Sometimes you get higher areas in the middle of paddy fields, where you see a few trees as well.
Usually these little plots are used for thrashing the harvest to collect grains. (Kamatha)
In this picture, there is a small canal flows right across the field and you see a few trees either side of it. Most are bamboo.

Those yellow flowers set this scene so beautifully. The paddy fields afford an expansive view one can grow comfortable with. So peaceful looking. Hope all is well.
