Chuikhim village - the terrace farms spread across the hills of Chuikhim gave it a variety in color and dimensions. It is difficult to raise crops in these hilly regions as the soil is hard and rocky. The villagers practice step farming, where they cut the hills as steps and grow crops on these terraces. Maize, corn and rice are the main choices of crop.
This photograph was taken from a height as we ascended towards the Chuikhim top and what I liked about this was the semi bird's eye view we got of the place, the variety of colors that we could see. Almost all shades of green from an artist's pallate was spread in front with a backdrop of blue sky with scattered white clouds.

This is a gorgeous shot. I needed to know what the habitat of tigers might look like--I'm doing a pastel painting of one & did not know what the background should look like.
I DID know about terraced farming, so I drew several hillsides with wavy lines, much like in your photo. I also tucked some little houses in. Imagine my surprise when I saw your other photo of this spot, the one with two huts, & found that I'd drawn huts just like the ones you show!
OK, maybe it is not such a BIG deal, but I am trapped in my home in California, USA, because I am disabled.
YOU are my eyes on the world and I thank you so, so much for putting your work here.
And I will not copy your shots--I'll just be inspired by them, OK? Thanks again for your beautiful work. MaryB
