Heaven on Earth

We were positioning on top of a hill waiting to take sunrise photo of the Rice terrace.

Suddenly there was a ray of light shinning on top of some cloud in another direction. I began to focus on it, with some luck a strong breeze and blow off some cloud reviling the glowing golden hill top. I managed to snap a shot.

It all happen so fast, in a matter of second my fellow photographers who are pointing at a different directions missed this shot.

Hi Tony,

What a fantastic moment you captured here. Looks just like a Chinese landscape scroll painting. Wonderful! A once in a lifetime shot. The colors are beautiful.


Evelynn : )

Beautiful! This has tons of atmosphere and the colours are very nice too, must have been amazing to see!

Well done :)


Fantastic capture Tony, this literally has great atmosphere to it. Iv done a workshop to boast contrast and correct colour balance, although I may be way off on the natural colour here. Big smiley from me, well done.

what a great moment to capture.

What an amazing shot! The clouds give it such a mystical quality. I'm sure it wasn't very warm, but the sun striking the trees gives a sense of warmth to the shot.

A breathtaking scene, Tony.
What else can one ask for besides such beauty.
The colors are wonderful, and the clouds give it a surreal feel.
TFS. : )

I don't think I could complement this enough. There are too many nice things to say.
Good timing, wonderful colours and movement.
