Wine Country…

by on May.10, 2012, under Life, Photography

We travelled through the back roads of wine country recently and never one to miss a photographic opportunity managed a few images on the way…

Note: These images (especially the wider shots) look much better when larger – so click any of the images below to see larger versions in an inline overlay slideshow gallery viewer.

It’s just starting to be fall colour time so I was lucky enough to get some of the turning leaves. A nice compressed landscape with the 70-200.

Autumn Rows

NIKON D7000 + 70.0-200.0 mm f/2.8 @ 200 mm, 1/125 sec at f/5, ISO 100

We stopped at this winery for a picnic lunch – this was our view from where we ate… This was a nine shot bracket HDR’d and then converted to monochrome. I’m not entirely happy with this image and I’m not sure why – I like the skies but… I should have binned it I think… 🙂

Vines and Skies

NIKON D7000 + @ 13 mm, 1/50 sec at f/11, ISO 100

On the way home we also visited this winery which had an amazing grove of autumn trees in a lovely courtyard outside the tasting rooms and I couldn’t resist a couple handheld HDR brackets whilst we were there. The colour of the red leaves on the pebbled ground along with the bright golden, orange and green leaves on the trees was vibrant and incredible.

Rose Coloured Fall

NIKON D7000 + @ 12 mm, 1/100 sec at f/5.6, ISO 100

Tea for Two

NIKON D7000 + @ 12 mm, 1/100 sec at f/5.6, ISO 100
