Autumn rice brings photographers to Doumen's villages
Late-ripening rice is fragrant in the golden fields of Doumen's Dachikan and Xincun villages as harvest-time attracts tourists and especially photographers.
Among them are 35 photographers from the Zhuhai Young Photographers Association taking pictures on 2,000 acres of Xiaochikan village's picturesque rice fields. Not only that but harvesters shuttle back and forth collecting the ears of rice. Farmers heave bags of grain-filled rice onto trucks, smiling happily over the good harvest.
The late-harvest rice will continue to be collected until the end of this month.
High-quality late-ripening paddy rice varieties are grown on 30,000 mu (2,000 hectare, 4,942 acres)
