This morning I can hear the farmers out planting their fields. Though our house is basically surrounded by forest, just on the other side are rice paddies and I can see the water glittering through the leaves.
Here is the closest rice paddy to us. Can you see the steam wafting off the surface of the water? I took this picture in the early morning and I think this happens when the warmer water from the well hits the water in the field when the night has been frosty... I think...
The only fields that had steam rising from them were having water brought to the surface this morning.
Sometimes the rice fields reflect silver.
Sometimes they reflect gold.
Sometimes they reflect scenery.
Sometimes they reflect... Hey! That's Tetsu and Choco way over there!
My favorite reflection.
