Wine Country Color 15

Fall in the Wine Country is a very special time. The hustle and bustle of "The Crush" is at full steam as the grape leaves display their awesome color. This image captures the brilliant blood-red translucent leaves. This Valley of the Moon Winery's white barn is a wonderful contrast to the blazing leaves.
My favorite lighting in which to capture tis amazing color is in the late afternoon. The Western Sun adds a glow to the already brilliant leaves. Backlit by the Sun, these leaves appear translucent and fragile.
Printed at 12 x 18 inches, and matted and framed to 18 x 24 inches, this image is truly a wonderful capture of this beautiful scene.
