The Farm #3

There are a few trees in the rice fields...self grown, and allowed to live there as they grow into useful amounts of wood that may be converted into charcoal for the kitchen.

I do love trees... what kind re these?
Ray: These are local trees, Elizabeth, but I am not at all good at identifying them.
Jolie ambiance brumeuse sur la première photo.
Ray: Merci, Martine. C'était tôt le matin et j'ai profité de la faible luminosité du soleil levant.

A good and sensible idea Ray. I like these tree portraits.
Ray: Thank you, Chad. I liked making them, too.

They look so gentle and are so robust.
Ray: I have great admiration for the life-force of trees, Philine.

Everything is utilised where you live, Ray
Ray: Yup...even the field rats are trapped and find their way onto the BBQ.

These pictures are so different in form that I suggest you are employing DEVILISH TWIDDLEAGE to alter their appearance..
Ray: The first is shot into the sun, Chris, and the second shot 5 minutes later with the sun behind me.

Both images got the benefit of some twiddleadge I performed with a free App I am playing with a bit at the moment.

Handy, too for the dogs to cock their leg against. The lower image could be somewhere in the UK - like north Norfolk where I am until tomorrow.,
Ray: Send me your Norfolk co-ordinates and, if I wake up and find I am in the vicinity, I will pop over to help you finish off that large hunk of fruitcake I know you have stashed somewhere handy.
I can see you are into a sustainable lifestyle Ray
Ray: We are, somewhat, self sustaining on our land, Bill. I am still trying to propagate the diesel tree, and a few other things like that.
Quelle chance de pouvoir faire pousser ainsi ses propres arbres ..j'adorerais ça ..j'ai offert un eucalyptus à  mon petit fils à  sa naissance ..
Bonne journée à  toi
Ray: J'aime la façon dont ma famille thaï traite les arbres presque comme les membres de sa famille, Claudine.
self sufficiency rules. It would be a poorer landscape without a few trees
Ray: Our farm trees are well-loved, Martin. There is much discussion in the family when one falls down or is removed for some reason.
Mostly trees are good for shade and the exchange of gasses.
Ray: This is true, Mary, but Khmer culture in the Village allows for the souls of trees, and so they are also regarded pretty much as family members...I like this, and was gobsmacked when lightning killed our main coconut palm a couple of years ago and this was celebrated almost the same as a family member funeral.
The trees nicely break up the large flat area being dotted about as they are rather than in a clump.
Ray: Yes...in the ricefields the trees are all lone trees, Brian.
Couple of nice shots.
Ray: Thank you, Tom.
