Photographer's Note

This farm is located immediately north of the small town of Nicasio. On the day I visited, late in May, there wasn't much activity but just two days ago when I drove through the Nicasio Valley I noted that workmen were busy weeding plants in the field immediately to the right of the tractor. Since they had a newer red tractor next to where they worked I concluded that this yellow companion is now only a piece of sculpture left in the midst of this field. I wouldn't suggest this rivals Carlos beautiful photos of rural France, but then this palette is distinctly different from the rolling hills with which he works. Here you have rugged hillsides covered with fir trees between which lie deep valleys. California has a remarkably arid climate in which agriculture thrives only because of careful irrigation with what little rain is collected each winter. In a few days I'll show you the Nicasio Reservoir nestled between rock strewn hills to the north that serves both the farmers and homeowners of the Valley. But tomorrow I'll show you a barn...
