View of an orange grove and a building in an unidentified area of Southern California. A row of cylindrical objects can be seen next to the trees. These may be smudge pots or "choofa" (also known as 'Orchard Heater'). Smudge pots are oil-burning devices, placed under a tree, that allow the heat and smoke from the burning oil in the pot to prevent the accumulation of frost on the fruit of the tree.
