We live in the heart of rice country here in the northern California and that particular grain’s beauty surrounds us year around. From the fresh moist dark dirt before planting to the flooded fields where the first glimpse of beautiful bright green emerges from the water, to the golden green waves of late summer into harvest, after which the fields are flooded again and provide winter stop-over sanctuary for birds from around the world. It’s incredible really to see year after year, and for the longest time I have longed to go out into the fields to shoot a bit of it’s beauty. Well lucky me, I got to have two shoots within weeks of each other! So exciting! Enjoy!
