Like yesterday's photo, this field has just been flooded and has some "volunteer" rice seedlings left over from last year's harvest.
another fantastic image!

Aah...this is so satisfying. There's alot for the eyes to take in despite it's initial look of simplicity. It says alot about the rural Japanese way of life.

I second Grant's comment. I don't know... it kinda has that ying and yang vibe to this shot. Rice patty is nothing without the people living in that house, and those people can't survive without food.

@Howard F.: Thanks for the comment. I think that relationship you describe -- between people and their environment, between the built environment and the natural environment -- is something I find myself photographing again and again. One of the reasons I love living where I do is that there are still many fields growing food of all kinds and there are also houses where people live. It's a nice co-existence.
Fantastic reflection. It looks like a painting in the water!

Just beautiful. Would make a great jigsaw puzzle, though I don't know what brings that to mind.

I like your images of rice fields. This one is rather different and quite effective. Excellent composition.
