25 Pictures of Rice Paddy Fields

Rice is the most important staple food on the planet. It provides more than 20% of the calories eaten worldwide, more than any other grain, and can be grown almost anywhere, as long as there’s enough water. Rice paddies are a fascinating travel photography subject because they have so much diversity. They can be trenched into a steep mountain or stretched out like a marsh on a flat plain, and they’re as popular in Asia as they are in African countries such as Madagascar and Sierra Leone. Here are 26 great pictures of rice paddy fields throughout the world.

Stephanie, I thank you for introducing me to rice fields. I never had the opportunity to see it as you showed it to me. It’s priceless this knowledge. May God bless you with the same blessings you gave me: understanding!

Nice pictures. I have never seen rice fields with this good of a quality of pictures. I grow rice in the united states in Arkansas. Arkansas has more rice than any state in the U.S. We have about 3 million acres in Arkansas but it is all on big farms of 1000 to 8000 acres or so. All big tractors and combines. It is nice to see how most of the world farms in comparison to us.
Thank You !
