Paddie Fields Chennai

Just outside the city of Chennai, you'll find the staple product of the city's diet - rice.  These are photos of paddie fields along the Chennai-Calcutta highway.  Rice needs a lot of water so the lower the ground level for planting, the better.  The harvest is still a few months away for this rice.


  1. I have seen rice paddie fields from a distance, but not this close. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Those are great shots. I had no idea what a rice paddy looked like.

  3. These are beautiful... Real India, great... Loved it!! Came over from BPOTW, have a lovely day:)
