Photographer's Note

According to the Zodiac: “The BUFFALO symbolizes industriousness and patience. The year is one of slow, steady progress and patient strength; traits suitable for a scientist. He is the traditional symbol of spring and agriculture because of his association with the plow and his pleasure in wallowing in mud. People of that year are thought to possess the characteristics of that animal: steady, placid, but stubborn when crossed. The buffalo hours are from 1am-3am when buffalo are feeding and the day's farm work begins.” (Source: Wiki).
In Vietnam, buffalo is the bread-maker among the famer's family as it is the main labor-force for ploughing paddies and farms for cultivation.
I took this pic on the pass named Violac when driving down from Kontum to Quang Nam. Dad and his two little sons are working hard on the rice paddy for a new crop. The first time I tried PP by HDR, I also post a colored version in the WS, if you want to see the difference, plz check!
