The celestial theme provided the inspiration for this shot.
This was taken as the leaves were beginning to fall from the vines.
For those who don’t know Were Wines is the name of a vineyard opposite the Bootleg brewery (presumably owned by the Were family). The sign outside the vineyard says “Were Wine – the’re beer”!
This was taken 12 months ago.
Although there were no clouds I wanted to catch the vineyard at dawn with the super moon low in the sky. The next opportunity is probably a long way off – tomorrow the moon will be higher in the sky at dawn. The predawn glow added color to this picturesque setting.
During autumn there is often fog over the Margaret River vineyards in the early morning. At this time of the year the leaves are turning yellow. The combination of autumn leaves, fog, and sunrise colors offer good opportunities for photographers. This image was taken April 20 last year. The Cape Clairault image from an earlier post is another example of the early morning fog.
. This was taken towards the end of April last year at the Hayshed Hill vineyard.
This image won a bronze award in the 2010 Landscape 500 competition. It is taken at the Abbey Vale vineyard in Wildwood Road, Yallingup. (The cellar door outlook is leased by “The Growers”, hence the title).
I would have liked to have had more clouds in the sky, but when I revisited the spot, the leaves were falling and the sun moved further north, spoiling the shot. Maybe next year.
