Says photoblogger Marina Lystseva aka fotografersha: "There is nothing more beautiful Bali scenery of rice terraces. As there is a hard and low-paid labour, as the cultivation of rice.

On average, the rice Matures in five months, most of the time while in the water. Put it in the water to avoid exposure to direct sunlight and protect from weeds. Empty fields just before harvest.

Bali is very well developed drainage system in the rice terraces with the top of the steps of the water is poured into the bottom, etc., not allowing them to stagnate and zabolottia this mini lakes."

We visited three famous places where a magnificent landscape of rice terraces. The first and most beautiful Jatiluwih.

From Ubud to Jatiluwih about 40 kilometers along the curve and to safely catch the sunset, we left at about three in the afternoon.

As it turned out, the sunset is not visible because the sun sets behind the mountain, behind the back, and fields located in the valley, buried in the shadows.

But the far-field well to illuminate.

In General, nothing really taking off, we decided to stay here till morning. Very handy on the way turned up the Motel where we had spent the night for only 200 thousand. (~22$)

And until it's dark, lunar landscape.

By the way, at the entrance to the village on the road is a box where foreigners are charging fees for the inspection of beauty. We arrived in the evening and no one was there, and in the morning before we tried to get three of pepper, staying near our scooters in the middle of the road and demanding tickets. Honest to God, just like that in broad daylight strange people come and demand money. Has been successfully sent to sleep.

Five in the morning. Little clouds — no ice. But more likely will not — that leaves in the evening.

To find the point that the terraces were reflected in the dawn, proved to be quite difficult.

And then with all the dope beat sheaves on the grid-cell.

Rice is poured inside, and cleaned out the Bush while throwing.

Then comes the initial clean — up cake is a pic of a big straw plates (or whatever it's called?) pouring on canvas, and hand adheres to the trash. Clean grain are easy to slip through his fingers.

And once the wind will carry away the straw. The process of refinement could not see, but along country roads we saw a lot of drying of rice, spread out on his massive panels.

The Balinese rice fields

One of the most popular places in ten kilometers from Ubud — Tetallalang (try to say at least the third time)

The Balinese rice fields

Here you can enjoy the view as the previous photo, and you can climb on the terrace — the view from the opposite side.

But here for each completed level you will require regular wages. That is typical — not once. Such signs was found five or six times:

But due to the fact that we came here very early, at half past five, no, not one of usher't we got and we quietly walked around the edges of the terraces...

The Balinese rice fields

What hills?

The Balinese rice fields

Higher on the hill is a village and the first person at seven in the morning was a local resident, a bit of English (!). Nothing is asked for, asked where we (as usual, two questions) and suggested to be treated with coconut juice. But we had water and we politely declined.

Hip-hop. Nimble guy.

The Balinese rice fields

But the village still went. There were three houses, a bunch of dogs, chickens, two pigs and one bull — a working rice fields. Apparently, never washed.
