Some landscapes are more colourful and more dramatic than others, but I still wanted to record this small area high up on the mountain. It was the very heavy heads of rice that impressed me.

As you can see, the rice is falling over and hanging down out of each terrace. And the system of water reticulation into every field is impressive management.

So thanks Domi and Mira for your appreciation. I am sure that GE will pick it up so that those who labour here in this out of the way corner are included in the global image system.

My dear friend Ian, really I enjoyed watching your last added pictures in the gallery, they are so natural and beautiful, thank you for sharing them with all of us (your Panoramio friends)...greetings from Macedonia

Macedonians are renowned for their generosity! Thanks for your encouragement, Ahmet. Warm greetings come to you from the Kingdom of Tonga.

And add mango, bamboo shoots, guava and a particularly nice nut (?) and we have a spread, Craig. But as this is Bali there will be chillis there somewhere!

I like the way you pick up on the fact that this photo was primarily to contribute to GE, not because it was some stunning image but because it documented a wee corner of Bali when the padi was weighed down in head ready for harvest.

Best regards, Craig.

Where did you get your love of chillis from Craig? - certainly not PNG! You betcha, every picture of mine implies another banquet or another cuisine provided generously by host communities!! And as you have been into my other site and seen pics of dignitaries at the Tonga National Conference, which runs for 10 days with banquets twice a day, you may ponder what that means in a Polynesian context! Poor little piggies.

I'll see if I can locate a photo of the non-betel nuts of Melanesia and see if you know their name, Craig.

Cheers, mate.
