Flickr Photo of the Week
Posted on: Thursday, May 17, 2012 8:00 AM by Allyson Ryan
Every week we pick a newly submitted photo from the Flickr Group "See Monterey- Beautiful Photos of Monterey County." This week's winner is "Converging Lines" submitted by Hal Bergman Photography. "Converging Lines" was taken in Salinas, CA (also known as the Salad Bowl of the World). So how did the Salinas Valley get this nickname? Well, the Salinas Valley alone produces 80% of the nation's lettuces as well as a large portion of the United States' supply of artichokes, broccoli, strawberries, squash and cauliflower. Take a drive out to the Salinas Valley to see the abundance of fields for yourself or check out an Ag Venture Tour to learn more about Monterey County's agriculture industry. Do you have an amazing shot of Monterey County that you think is worthy of "Flickr Photo of the Week?" Submit your photo to our Flickr Group and you just might get picked!
