When the rain has come

A view ove rthe the Cambodian landscape after a rain shower. The lush fields are striking there. The sky is threatening full of thunder clouds.

Took this picture during my bumpy bus ride from Phnom Penh to Siem Reab. It was a gorgeous journey.

Increased brightness and contrast slightly, cropped, add frame and text, resized, shapened.

Hello Hans,
Immaculate presentation of this rice field. Well lit wuth the inclusion of little foliage casting shadow to the field. The swaying palms, the distant village are stunning against that vibrant sky. Very well done and have a wonderful weekend.

Prachtige kleuren op de Killing fields Hans,het vlakke land van Cambodja.

A beautiful light you had here Hans, well composed, luch greens and ominous clouds. TFS,

Many thanks for your comment on ‘Natural Abstract’

Hi Hans,

Ach ja, het blijft persoonlijk, maar hier houd ik van, rust ruimte, frisse kleuren, schone lucht, wel nog een rood dakje te zien - gewoon fantastisch.


Hoi Hans,

Weer een mooie plaat. Ja, je vraagt je altijd af hoe het toch kan dat het daar zo groen is. Maar als je er dan bent merk je dat het daar óók gewoon regent :-).
Maar het zijn van die heerlijke stortvloeden die dan precies een uur duren en dan is het ook weer prettig 28 graden daarna. Heb ik toch liever dan dat eeuwige gemiezer in Nederland...
Ik vind hem heel mooi. Had misschien het blauw iets zwaarder aan gezet, maar hij is mooi.

Groet! Dennis

Best regards

Hi Hans,
Beautiful landscape, I like the contrasting blues and greens, the deepness of the photo and those wonderful clouds! TFS
