After winning a Champion Rice award last year, rice farmer Tien Shou-hsi has this year tried planting a hectare of wheat. Unexpectedly, his wheat field turned out to be a popular location for local photography enthusiasts vying for the best shots, and photographers were once more attracted to take pictures on the day he harvested the wheat.

Very few farmers in Hsinchu County plant wheat, so when the wheat in Tien’s field in the Donghai area of Jhubei City started coming into ear, and as the ears turned yellow, it became a target site for photography enthusiasts looking for a good shot. The golden wheat field really makes a lovely scene, but some of the wheat got trampled by careless people who trod too close, causing quite a lot of wheat spikes to drop off.

Tien joyfully harvested his wheat at the end of last month. While operating the harvester, he had to keep reminding the photography buffs to look out for their safety. Tien said that although it was a bit of a bother, he enjoyed quite a sense of achievement.

新竹縣竹北市稻農田守喜去年拿下冠軍米殊榮,今年改試種一公頃小麥,沒想到麥田意外成為當地攝影愛好者爭相取景的人氣景點,收割當天又吸引攝影愛好者前往拍照。

新竹縣內種植小麥的農民非常少,田守喜在竹北市東海地區的這處麥田,自從小麥抽穗轉黃後,就成為不少攝影愛好者取景的目標,黃金麥田的景觀的確十分好看,但麥田被一些沒公德心的人靠近踩踏,麥穗也掉落不少。

田守喜上個月底歡欣收割小麥,操作機具的他一邊收割一邊提醒攝影玩家小心安全,他雖然覺得有些麻煩,但也很有成就感。
