The Jinkeng Rice Terraces are located in Longsheng County, about 100 km from Guilin, Guangxi, China.The terraced fields are built along the slope winding from the riverside up to the mountain top, the highest part being 900m in elevation while the lowest part is 400m. The coiling line that starts from the mountain foot up to the mountain top divides the mountain into layers of water glittering in the sun in spring, layers of green rice shoots in summer, layers of golden rice in fall, and layers of silvery frost in winter. The terraced fields were mostly built during the Ming Dynasty, about 500 years ago.They are often considered most beautiful in the end of May or early June. At this time, water is pumped over the rice paddies and young plants are transferred to the main terraces

New on 500px : Sunrise in Sarankot by elkynz by elkynz

We went up the mountain in Sarankot of Nepal for the sunrise but unfortunately it was raining by that time. We waited for an hour in the cold until rain stopped for a brief moment. Some red clouds appeared in the clouds beyond, but after all, no sun.
