The glacial accidents of 600 million years ago produced the deep valleys and veins of decomposed organic matter that accumulated on the prehistoric lake bottom in what is now Great Meadows and Alphano. The eventual swamp was drained in the mid 1800s, converting 5,000 acres into farmland known for its rich muck soil (black dirt). Today, several farms and greenhouses there are a gardener's Nirvana. Besides producing hundreds of acres of sod, row upon row of greenhouses are filled with annuals, perennials, mulch, herbs and farm fresh seasonal produce grown in the fertile meadows.

The lack of sharpness through the image is a large negative to what is a well composed image. I do like the processing from a colour point though

I think DPC'ers may have trouble identifying this with geology. I do like the sepia tones.

I'm trying to decide if this really fits the challenge, or if you just shoehorned in a landscape shot you liked. Although this field may or may not be on an ancient lake bed, it really does not scream geology to me. I do like it, however.

The scenery is nice enough, though this looks like it was taken from a moving car.
