About a month ago I went up to Sonoma Valley for their annual Barrel Tasting weekend. About 140 wineries participate and for ~$20 you can get tastings at any of the wineries, get a free wine glass, and even some yummy grub if the winery is so nice to have a BBQ. We made it to 5 wineries before getting burnt out and at the last one their wall was lined with wine bottles. I thought it made for some neat geometry so I snapped away.
As you’ll notice I’m trying to get away from doing HDR photos. The set of HiTek filters and my Lee Filter holder mean I get a lot better light into the camera and don’t need to take multiple exposures as much. Only 3 of my last 10 photos have been HDR. I tossed around the idea of posting this as a non-HDR but there was just too much detail in the HDR version that I decided to post this one.
