Village along the road to Ta-Oi District.

rice fields by vapi bridge.jpg, originally uploaded by c_p_lew.

This was taken on Thursday during a typical occurrence - a logging truck broke down on the one-lane bridge so while we were waiting, I walked around, taking pictures of the fields along the road. I could see men in the distance carrying fishing nets to the river on their shoulders and people in the fields harvesting rice (this section of the province has a good irrigation system for cultivating dry season rice). This picture was taken in the western part of Vapi District, Salavan Province. The fields, palmyra palms and the lighting remind me of central Cambodia.

There are some other sky pictures from this week, 23 April and 22 April
This is getting to be the season with the most dramatic changes of weather, and clouds. The skies can be so clear after a thunderstorm - but as for getting out to remote districts for work, it's difficult.

This is my contribution to Skywatch Friday which is hosted over at Wiggers World
