Passing The Field

by Danu Primanto

A farmer passes through the middle of onion fields in Karanganyar district, Central Java, Indonesia. The onion is usually used in cooking where it makes the taste more spicy. The high rise of oil price hit onion price slowly. Now, the farmers can only sell it at 1,500 rupiahs/kilograms ($ 0,15).
Equipment: Nikon D40

wow danu that is an awesome photo

The ariel perspective gives such a graphic result. The lines and the patterns quite interesting.

Great study in patterns!! Red cap and green grass – serendipity.
One could have placed the farmer at the thirds.
Great shot anyway.
BTW – Where are you standing, is it on a small plane or some huge harvester / cultivating machine?

Salam kenal mas Danu,

This looks like a patchwork quilt; I like the geometry. I grow onions myself but they don’t look like that.

nice artistic word. seems like a its a painting and the farmer exactly in the middle is a good focusing point. I also like the contrasting colors
