New on 500px : golden land by ceciliach by ceciliach

This picture was taken in Xinghua, Jiangsu province, China. The landscape here is called Duotian in chinese. Thousands of small pieces of land, square or round, wide or narrow, are standing separately above water, just high enough not to be drowned, with endless rapeseed flowers blossoming in every April. Surrounded by deep water, boat is the only means of transportation where local farmers have been living and working for generations. They need to add as much mud to the stacks every year to make up for land erosion caused by water waves and human activities. It manifest itself of a primitive farming practice that has been going on for thousands of years.

Now every spring, a lot of tourists go there to enjoy the stunning view. And the village built two towers inside the rapeseed to offer some vantage point view for photographers and tourists.
