Short Drive in the Country

On Wednesday after picking up our taxes I decided to go for a short drive into the country outside of Ukiah, Ca south of where I live in Willits. Actually in Mendocino County any time you leave any small city town or village you are immediately in the country. It's a beautiful place to live and I'm glad that for this period of time in my life that God has planted me here. Outside of Ukiah there are a lot of vineyards. I stopped by one where they were irrigating. As a photographer I loved the repeating patterns created by the rows of vines. There was something fascinating about the way they were broken up by the pattern of the sprinklers. I must say I really felt sorry for the poor guy working adjusting and repairing the sprinkler heads. It looked like cold, wet work. Enjoy the images and God's blessings to you, chris All images created with Canon 7D and a Tamron 150-600 handheld. Camera settings varied.
