This is the padi trail that i have been following for sometimes. It is very narrow and the earth is quite soft. You will walk along the trail looking so some interesting subjects like water plants such a water hycinth, water lilies, mosses and weeds. These subjects were seldom ventured and seldom given attention. As for the fauna, there were many types of grasshoppers jumping around when you walk near them. There were also herons, bee eaters, amphibian, reptiles and also dragonflies.
Only the agriculture officers were known for these. So it is not .....when the farmers thought Im an agri officer and a few thought Im a land surveyor for carrying a bag of lens and a tripod in the middle of this quiet land. People do exercise their hobby to this extend in my part of the world, because it is hot, tiring and did not get much financial returns.
The reason why Kodiang is the chosen location is that it has a vast padi fields with outcrops of limestone karsts. Other part of Kedah padi plains , it is padi fields and trees.

From Wikipedia
Kedah (Jawi: قدح, also known by its Arabic honorific, Darul Aman, or "Abode of Peace") is a state of Malaysia, located in the northwestern part of Peninsular Malaysia. The state covers a total area of over 9,000 km², and it consists of the mainland and Langkawi. The mainland has a relatively flat terrain, which is used to grow rice. Langkawi is an archipelago of islands, most of which are uninhabited. Kedah was called Syburi (Thai: ไทรบุรี) by the Siamese when it was under their influence.

Kedah borders the state of Perlis and shares an international boundary with the Songkhla and Yala provinces of Thailand to the north. It also borders the state of Perak to the south and Penang to the southwest.

The state's capital and royal seat is Alor Setar. Other major towns include Sungai Petani, and Kulim on the mainland, and Kuah on Langkawi.

Hello Foozi,
This view along the Padi field trail gives a fine perspective in a nice composition with the karst limestone 'island'
Thanks and kind regards,

Salam Foozi,

Another interesting shot from your beautiful country. Insha Allah, it can be posible to visit and see there. I really wonder Malaysia and Indonesia. I think there are many kinds of beautiful exotic plants.

With my compliments
Ma assalama.

Hi Foozi!

This is again very green, and I like it! I especially like the simplicity of the composition and the superb effect of the perspective created by the line on the left. The lighting is well balanced and offers natural and very pleasant colours.

Slav Foozî,
Very beautiful landscape,excellent colors,great POV.TFS.

Excelente documento que nos muestra con claridad como sos esas tierras. Me encanta la naturalidad de los verdes, tanto los de la vegetación de esa prominencia, como los de los arrozares.
Buena luz.

Salam akhi Foozi
We are in winter period and nowadays it is very cold, now it is more than 15 Celsius degree under zero. You live in tropical place and I think it is summer for you.
Nice to see such a beautiful and green landscape in these winter days. you greatly presented another landscape shot from Padi field. Nicely composed and from great POV. colors and white cloudy sky very beautiful. thanks for sharing,
best regards my friend

Fine landscape with beautiful colors. I did one WS hope you don't mind. I did crop to landscape format. tfs.

Hello Foozi
superb image of this padi field,nice point of view and great perspective,
the colors are very beautiful and the details are sharp
really a wonderful landscape
have a good night

Hi Foozi,

Dear Friend, You forgot to mention this is Your 400th post. First of all, congratulations!

Great landscape photo. Simple yet effective, lights and colors are quite natural (unlike on the WS). An interesting one, even in its simplicity. What did You clone out from left, closed to the frame? I ask this because there's a vertical line remained on the sky, which is a bit disturbing (not a lot though).

Great personal note, too, as often from You. Believe me, I also used to get strange look from people when I'm in the park and hunt for "models", so I know this feeling.

Friendly regards, László

Hello Foozi
a truly beautiful photo where colors, contrasts and light are all optimally balanced.
Great perspective and definition on clouds and landscape. Congratulations for your 400th post.
