Islandscape

Posted by
grouser (Ludlow, United Kingdom) on 16 February 2011 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

The island is a joy to get around. It is small and there are no cars to speak of. Motorised traffic sticks to the Mekong. We rent bikes and take a tour through the landscape. Here is a typical house in the paddy fields. Typical power lines in the frame too, but I couldn't bear to crop the sky:)

Your framing of the horizon line is perfect here to show the best of this wonderful sky!

Grouser sky again! You know what I think about f'ing power lines, but maybe they've goy slightly more of an excuse in a less developed country. Going around on a bike must be exactly the right thing to do. Quick enough to cover a few miles, slow enough for you to be able to see the sights

A beautiful landscape I've fallen in love. The sky is magnificent and offers an excellent framework for the delicate house. A good editing job Grouser! Adela

Nice view, I love the house on stilts, is this an indication of regular flooding?
Wires can be a real pain, you could try having a look at Wire Worm.

@Curly: Thanks for the link Curly. I could have cloned them out too I guess, though part of me thinks if they are there so be it. Whether that's laziness or not .... hmmm.

I go through the same mental stresses with birds in the sky, I cannot explain it.

@Curly: Oh by the way yes regular flooding and probably water around for much of the year in the surrounding paddy fields

great composition: love the sky and the contrast of colors with the field and between the powerness of the clouds and the fragility of the house.

A fine shot of this lush area. I like the rich colors and details of the image. The sky was much to good to leave out of the image.

Beautyfull perspective: you arranged well you composition so to play with the lines of the sky and the ones of the little house. The tones are perfectly balanced. See you, Grouser, un abrazo !
