Harvest Moon in Bali


I went photo-walking at the right time; it was harvest moon in Bali and I captured these golden rice fields. In Bali, the harvest moon comes around each 3 months or so; in older days, the harvest moon came each 6 months. The reason for that is because the Balinese now use prime crops (possibly the result of genetic engineering) to yield results twice as fast as its predecessor. These photos were taken around the Sembung – Baturiti area, two places which are located on the main road connecting Denpasar and Candidasa. But, you won’t find these on that particular main road; you’d have to venture off the road into the pristine village area, and keep in mind: the roads in those areas are harsh because they’re cracked here and there, leading to a very bumpy ride. I suggest you take a bike, or better yet, just hike. The specific loactions are: Cao Belayu village and the village of Leba, the former is still within Sembung area, the latter in Baturiti.
