Scenic Sunday

Long ago, San Ramon was a rural agricultural community. Most of the farm sites have long since been gobbled up by housing and business developments, 
but one picturesque historical farm remains in tact...
Forest Home Farms, San Ramon, CA
(3/8/09)

What a lovely scene.
It is very sad to see developments gobble up rich, fertile soil, open spaces, and habitat for critters.

Beautiful shot! Is there some reason the farm managed to avoid the fate of many of its neighbors?

What a beautiful scene, and a wonderful place to visit. As ever, I love your composition. (And I'm still envious of that blue sky!)

Hello Linnea, Thanks for stopping by at my blog. First, I enjoyed your idea for Ruby Tuesday, the old red pick-up truck.
For Scenic Sunday, I like the compositon of the photo of the farm buildings and the grasses in the foreground. I, too have been bringing my camera wherever I drive to. I have a few photos of the cows in last of the nearby farms in my area; much of the land is developed into mini mansions. Is there a photo meme for farm animals? Happy Scenic Sunday!

I really like the contrast of this photo! Up on hill top is the grandeur of a beautiful Tuscan style home....in the valley, a barn with what appears a horse manure pile. I recognize it because I have one just about like it on my farm in Indiana! LOL! The lighting is superb and the blue skies wonderful against the green....great view through your lens! Thanks for sharing!
