I like this view for the clouds, the light, and the long row of brush between the two stands of big trees on either side. This was the atmosphere around here a couple of days ago, before dense fog rolled in again. (It's raining this morning — quoi de neuf ?)
The spindly trees in the distance that line the horizon have overgrown a parcel of vines. They weren't there when we first came here more than 15 years ago. Back then, we had a clear view of the horizon. The vines and their support posts and wires were not removed; they were abandoned and trees just grew up among them. If and when anybody ever wants to grow grapes there again, I guess the first thing needed will be a bulldozer.
