We were on our way to Lao Hu Zui and discovered these seamless paddy fields. Almost everyone was attracted by the reflection of the blue sky on the surface of the fields. Suddenly we saw a bunch of school kids, tens of them, running wildly and freely in the field, shouting, laughing and chasing each other. Such a joyous moment for the kids and for us! It seemed the school was just dismissed.

This was set to be another great scene for our excursion.

"This is how kids should behave, wild and free! Not just sitting in front of the computer terminal violently fighting aliens." I said to my friend, while composing and firing as many shots as I possibly could.

Interestingly, the images were more appealing when the sun was blocked by the clouds. I used average metering and the mode was set to aperture priority, at the speed, I found I could hand hold the shots and be able to obtain sharp images.
