Here is another shot from Amber taken at the rice terraces of Ping’an. When her back is turned or she is distracted, I have been secretly putting ISO into her meals that I prepare for her, and this plan is starting to work out better than I had planned. I might cut back on her ISO soon since she has requested I order her a Gorilla Pod for her D40. I actually had to wipe a tear from my eye to hear she would like one, although, I may have talked her into it a bit. Nevertheless, my plan is still working and I couldn’t be happier!
I started the process of going though our worthwhile pictures that were taken in the rice fields of Ping’an and thought I would post a couple up before I put together a little trip report page for that area. This area is simply a photographers dream. Not only is it quite and completely distanced from the crowds in China, it is also a place where you could find one spot in the rice terraces and set up your camera 365 times throughout the year, and always come away with a completely new shot depending on the season, irrigation, weather, time of day, and slight angle variances of each shot. If you are ever in the Guilin area and have an interest in amazing scenery or photography, do not pass this area up!
