17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
A shot of a rice field in Northern California taken with a drone.

I have been taking shots of rice fields in Northern California with a drone I purchased last year. There are endless abstract patterns created by the fields and their appearance is always changing due to the plants growth and the lighting conditions. When the fields are flooded, they reflect the sky and when the rice is growing the fields can appear electric green.
