Sunset at Hacienda Guba [SWF]

@ mirandablue
Visited relatives at Hacienda Guba when I was in Negros in early March.  This is a rural farming community a few kilometers from the town center of Valladolid, my mother's hometown.  Known as the rice granary of the province, 90% of Valladolid's arable land is planted with rice. I hope it would stay that way for the next generations to come. The endless rice fields laid out at sunset is one of the beautiful images I keep to remember this place.

BTW, I like your background music - an interesting light spirited rendition of Pink Floyd's UNCOMFORTABLY NUMB. Who sang this version ?
