Very nice KP. I think it is used by the workers to take shelter from rain or take a break from back breaking work. Very nice.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Sankara,
Glad you like it!

Frieda ,
Yes I really liked the location of the hut.

Magerata,
Most probably yes, but what a location!

Anastasia,
Glad you like it.

Amila,
Yes, I was thinking of posting a closer image but then thought the surrounding also vital to show the location

Betsy,
Yes that is a tea estate, but a smaller one. A bigger tea estate will look like this.

Hoot-a-Toot,
Yep, a great one isn’t it? :)

Rainfield,
I couldn’t see any owners there. May be you can own it :D

Thanks all for your wonderful comments!

Beautiful tea plantation.
Great capture.

aloha,

very nice, we just started some tea growing plantations in hawaii, coffee is more predominant and well known, but i can imagine how intensive this work must be also to take care and harvest teas.

betchai said...

yes, i see it and the beautiful arrangement of the tea farm.

Knatolee said...

I am grateful to all the tea-pickers for making my favourite drink possible. It looked like a killer job to me. :(

Kirigalpoththa said...

George,
Yes I also thought it is the setting of the hut is quite unique.

Regina,
Thanks very much!

Noel,
Tea plantation in Hawaii. That is good to hear.
Yes, it is hard labour all the way from tea growing to tea plucking and factory work.

Betchai,
Usually tea estates are nicely arranged so tea pluckers get better access.

Knatolee,
Totally agree. It is never an easy job to bring that special tea leaves which you enjoy at your home :)

Thanks all for your wonderful comments!

I love your paddy field and plantation pics the best and this might top of the list :)

Kirigalpoththa said...

Glad you like it. Yes I love photographing paddyfields and plantaions.

Harumi said...

Great pic! Life in the estate is definitely rough and tough but a tea break in such a lil hut might bring them a lil closer to bliss.

I was wondering if Lanka owns all the greens in the world. =D

Kirigalpoththa said...

Harumi,
Yes it is greener than most of the countries. Believe me :)
Thanks for your comments.
