I stopped by the rice paddy after work, it was extremely hot and my camera lens kept fogging up in the first 5 to 10 minutes that I got there. The temperature was around 95 degree Fahrenheit (35 degree Celsius) but it felt more like 100 degree.
I’ve been using the auto setting on my camera to shoot in the past and decided to step away from that. Please bear with me if my photos look kind of odd as I am learning the new settings on my camera.
Since I’m not relying on the auto focus anymore, it is a must to have a good eyesight. And a good thing that I have a 20/20 vision and can manually focus the image as sharp as I can.

Back to the rice paddy, it has been eight weeks of rice planting and most of the rice pods are out now. The paddy has a nice aroma of the new rice plants and pods. I think I can hang out here all day, but there’s only one problem…the heat is scorching hot. It doesn’t look like it in this image below, but don’t let it fool you.
This is a white rice paddy. They had a head start on this, and it was planted 2 weeks prior to the rest of the paddies.
The rice pod looks almost like the purple sticky rice, but unlike the purple sticky rice, these will not turn any darker purple than this.
