Weekly Photo Challenge–Intricate

For this week’s challenge–Intricate

I offer a second entry as my first entry apparently did not take this morning.  Apparently the system does not like more than one pingback

Somewhere in Santa Rosa, California there exists a collection of very intricate public murals…Marked by an ordinary street sign and a fountain.

This image is but a small sample from the many mural panels…

New Vineyard…Just outside Petaluma!

On Ely Road South at Browns Lane, over 300 acres are being manicured for a new vineyard just outside the city limits and the urban growth boundary. Tractors and crews are in full swing on a project challenging to behold with the eye or camera.

When I first saw it, I wondered about the source of the irrigation water for such a large project.

As it happens, the vineyards will be irrigated with recycled, treated wastewater from Petaluma.  This is just another step in the trend to use reclaimed water for agriculture in Sonoma County.

But enough words. I’ll let the photos tell the story…

To give a sense of the size, I created this panoramic view by stitching together three wide angle photos. © Frank Simpson
