Another early morning photograph. The aera being more than 200 days per year completly in the clouds we were lucky to have the mist creeping up from the lower part of the valley.
The rice terraces were carved out of the slopes of the mountains by local minorities, this being just a small part of several entire terraced valleys.

Beautiful terraces, nicely captured with the mystic effect of the fog. Great job.

Great one, Marcus. Splendid composition taken in an exceptional moment of the day. The monocromatic tone of this photo is amazingly well portrait. Congratulations.

I agree with Miquel about very special moment of the day. The light and mist makes this photo, and you used these conditions very well. This composition looks like abstract. My favourite!

This is just beautiful. I like the overall blue tone to the image and the way the mist covers and uncovers bits of the terraces is just amazing. I have not been there yet, but it sure is on my list. Good work.

Very well captured mist and good contrast between (not overexposed) highlights and shadow areas. Could be even better converted to b/w?

Superbe paysage, on ne se lasse jamais de contempler ces rizières en étages...

Wow, das muss ja ein Erlebnis gewesen sein, dieses Naturereignis zu sehen. Wunderbar eingefangen. Sehr schön! Nino

A lovely shot indeed. The mist is clear, but not overwhelming, and brings interest into areas that might otherwise be dark and underexposed. Well spotted.
SebastianSeng (354) 2007-01-17 20:36
this is a truly magical image. It's your ability to lock in on the compo combined with mother nature that gave this image the magical touch. Did i say it's absolutely beautiful?

You made it !!!!
I didn't go there, but in Longji in Guangxi.
Your picture is great with the clouds and water in the fields.
Light and framing is really good.
