POTW 9 Sept 2013: Rice harvesting season

It’s currently the rice harvesting season in Japan. Unlike many other Asian countries, there is only one rice season a year, as it gets too cold to have more. Countries like Vietnam can replant as soon as they harvest as it’s warm enough year-round.

Here is a close up of a stem with rice nearing the end of season. More rice photos can be found on my PhotoShelter portfolio, and harvesting photos at my agent’s website, Henry Westheim / Asia Photo Connection.
