A lovely place indeed and a great photo! I, too, love the mist. Too bad so many lovely places like this are slated for development which means this peaceful beauty will disappear! Have a great week!

I feel sad when I hear about such lovely land being taken over for development. You used the mist very well to soften the landscape and tell the story. Thanks for sharing.

Wow - it was expropriated! That's disgusting - what developer has that kind of political clout? Very sad indeed.

That there will be development here is not in and of itself bad...it depends on the kind of development and environmental stewardship that will or won't be mandated...a lovely melancholy mood to your photo...

This is prime farmland that is being sold off as part of the government's urban density plan to double the population by 2020.

If it were just the one farm, but it is actually several miles of farmland that will be soon lost.
