Nice, reminds of rice terraces in Benguet! Although, I never been there, it's a shame that I never have the chance to visit the beauty of the Phils. Hubby and I will work on that :) soon!
I have never been to China although I have spent time in Japan and South Korea. The terraces are familiar but what are the poles which are so neatly set in long rows? I enjoy your photos very much.
What an incredible scene. It looks so lush.
Tulsa Gentlemen: I think those poles are speakers and this is actually a rock music venue. ;-)Very pretty green country.Lovely photo, Francisca, now that I've stopped being silly.Bearing in mind what you said about Paris (we really weren't planning to drive there) and what others said, we decided to go for a consensus but putting it out into the blogosphere.Dick's idea, not mine.-- KKay, Alberta, CanadaAn Unfittie's Guide to Adventurous Travel
beautiful greens surrounding this bridge. marvelous shot.
Very nice. I wish I could see the village a little better but the terraces are lovely ;-)
Wow! Spectaculary beautiful scenery. A super photo.
Bonjour chère Francisca!So peaceful scenery with adorable energy from the mother nature!Wonderful capture and beautiful bridge!HugsLéia
The stone bridge is beautiful...as well as the rice (?) fields behind it. I love the design that they make :-D
Always nice to what other parts of the world has to offer. Great capture.
Superb shot, beautifully framed. All that green is so restful to the eye.
Now why do I fancy some rice for late Sunday lunch all of a sudden?
This is a Scenic Sunday, indeed!
What gorgeous greens! I cannot tell which I like better: the bridge or the terraced hills behind it. This is a wonderful shot with such beautiful hues.
I love both, the bridge and the landscape. Great :)Have a nice Sunday
hi, Francisca! thanks for droppin' by my bridge.:pLuna Miranda is my first name though i am usually called Luna (or Looney, depending on the phase of the moon :P).
The bridge looks nice, but what really caught my attention were those gorgeous terraces in the background!
Thank you for leaving a comment on my photo Francisca. After I left my comment on yours, I did in fact click to enlarge your photo and there I was able to see the village. Thank you for your help and I look forward to seeing more from you :-)
and what a gorgeous view from that bridge!
That's such a beautiful part of China. When I see photos like this it's hard to understand that China has such a HUGE population.
A peaceful view of a very nice corner of China. The bridge is lovely.
Oh, lucky that you were there to capture this very green scene. It's a beautiful photo, Francisca!Peace,GinaMy Post is here
Terraces, a marvel. My husband who is an engineering consultant admires how people in the past built the terrace.When you go on a hydro slide, don't wear your yellow itsy bitsy bikini. I had friends who went and lost their bkinitop some where on the way. LOL
Amazing view & truly phenomenal work that goes into rice terraces!
A beautiful scene! I love this little bench. Very cute.
Lovely photo and I like those sculpted terraces. Very cool, albeit built to be useful!
I find it interesting that the ledge on the bridge seems to be the only straight line in this view.
The photo really is lovely. I think by the Mao thing you mean about the purges (or whatever they are called) of the Cultural Revolution. I don't know much of the history, but after reading that book you left here, I have such a vivid image of how terrible life may have been like in one of those houses - at least for some.
I love Scenic Sunday because I feel like I can quickly take a mini trip around the world. Beautiful peaceful photo.Kathttp://inmydreamssfk.blogspot.com/
Gorgeous! I love rice terraces.
I don't think many - if any - people get follow up messages, so I usually answer questions/comments on the person's own blog. But in case future visitors wonder:@Tulsa Gentleman - good eyes! Our best guess is that they are small power poles for small farm equipment at different locations, like water pumps. We had such poles, not as neatly in a row, on our small lychee farm in south China.@EG Wow - as in most countries, the population density really is in the urban centers, except here the numbers are staggering, with many cities having over 15 million residents.@tapirgal - no, here Mao (more typically spelled Miao, but not considered PC) refers to one of the 55 official minority groups recognized by the Chinese government. The Mao are comprised of several groups who are linguistically and culturally related. I'll post more about them in future.
i remember all the tea terraces in China from when i wen to a tea farm. Brings me back! Nice shot!
