The laterite road allows machineries and transportations in the production of rice in Kedah. The river supplies water for irrigation so that it will yield a good harvest. Sometimes there were draught and the farmers were avail as their yield will drop drastically. So the river plays a very vital role in the padi planting industry. As you could see the padi is so green, as all the needed elements were presence. Efficient planting and harvesting, irrigation and selling.
I am just a bystander appreciating the beauty of these three natural gifts.
Kedah, this northwest state shares a common border with Thailand in the north. Known as the "Rice Bowl of Malaysia", the Kedah-Perlis rice plains produce more than half of the country's home grown rice supply. It is a land of unique natural beauty, surrounded by much greenery. The terrain of Kedah is considered 'flat' with "kampungs" (villages) scattered over "padi" (rice) fields. One will be able to feast their eyes on lush green padi fields enhanced by traditional Malay houses, coconut palms, local fruit trees, and rolling hills. The people of Kedah are generally padi planters with most living in kampungs next to their fields. As one of the oldest states in Malaysia, Kedah has a population of approximately 1 million people, which is made up of various races. Kedah is very much a Malay state although traces of Thai or Achinese ancestry can still be seen.

Hi Foozi,this very nice and colorfull landscape is unusual for TN....but must to be showed for the friends that don't walk on TE too.Beautiful point of view ..i like a lot the magic reflection of the tree in the water.Have a nice day and thanks for this different view! Luciano

Hallo Foozi
This is a beautiful landscape, with lots of lovely details. Absolutely wonderful to look at. The variation of colours of the different elements of natures is well captured and well displayed in your image. The lonesome tree in the far in the background is definitely worth mentioning. A very peaceful scene and most relaxing landscape to look at, it is as if the view can go on and on until it disappear in the distance. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Hi Foozi,

One more superb landscape with bright colours. The sky is bright blue and the rice farms are lush green. The tree along the river is standing in elegance with its nice reflection. Superb capture!

Hello Foozi,
A long time ago when I was at school the art master taught us about perspective and vanishing points and he drew a picture to illustrate the principle. This shot does exactly that. The water canal is shown from a great POV to virtually disappear on the horizon of this plains landscape in a superb composition.
I can imagine the insect life along this canal!
Thanks and all the best,

hello Foozi

Hi Foozi.
I like your very nice shot of these cute places as well as excellent note. POV is superb and you managed to create true three-dimensional image. Lights and colours are clean and fine. Transparency of the image is exceptional as well as crisp sharp details of the entire image. Many thanks for so nice presentation of the place and kind wishes.

Hi Foozi. An excellent perspective with good colours and amazing light. Nice landscape.


Hi Foozi,

The reflections in the water are assets to the composition. The point of view leads our eyes toward the horizon which is giving depth and perspective to the composition. The blue sky with some clouds is sending a light which is enhancing the colors of the scenery. Have a nice day.
