This is the most beautiful natural and cultural landscape of Yuanyang Terraces, and it is the best place to go if you wish to photograph the sunrise. The terraces in this scenic area, including Duoyishu, Aichun, and Dawazhe, are more than 1647.4 acres in total. Sunrise provides the most beautiful sight in Duoyishu as the morning there highlights the superlative dynamic landscape. As a kind suggestion, we recommend that you can pay special attention to the changing color of the water during the early morning sunrise. As the reflections and shadows are constantly changing, the visual impact can be overwhelming.
Yuanyang Rice Terrace have been acknowledge by UNESCO as a World Culture and Natural Heritage Site.

I heard it is not a very easy place to go but it really worths it. The rice terraces are a perfect example how humans can beautify a landscape ! Moreover you caught a great atmosphere with those dark skies and the sunbeams.
Have a nice week,

I love this shot! Very appealing. I love the shaft of light coming from behind the clouds and the reflection of the blue sky towards the terraces. Approaching the image into two sections made it more interesting!

A really special shot, Tony - the sky reflected in the water below creates the look almost of stained glass across the ground. Add to that the rays of light emerging from the cloud at top and you have a really dramatic and contrasting landscape. Thanks!

In your image these terraced fields look like taken out of a fairy tale. The colours are unbelievably beautiful and mirror the equally splendid hues in the sky. The rays of light in the top part of the photo are simply amazing.
