No, it’s not a small installation by Christo, but plastic wrapped food for livestock ;^). Wrapped silage is not a usual sight here in the county, but because of the unusually wet weather we had in late June it kind of makes sense. I grabbed the scene during my mind mellowing drive through the hills a few days back. It was nice of the farmer to arrange the bales in such an aesthetically pleasing way.

Here’s an intimate scene of a typical summer afternoon out in the hills of southwestern Sonoma County, California. The fog veiling the higher hills is a regular presence.

Today, towards the end of my commute, I found this little scene. It looks very Sonoma County in late Spring. The grass losing its green means Summer is near.

Approaching mid September in Sonoma County, California. No clouds (other than fog), and no rain for months. The California Live Oak thrives during these long, dry summers. They are everywhere along the last 15 miles of my commute home. I tend to take them for granted, but when there’s nothing else presenting itself along the way, they’re almost always worth taking the time for a few shots.
