Early bunches from the first vineyard began veraison, veraison is the start of ripening. Berries start to change physical and chemically, it is noticeable by change of color and softening of the berries.
Today I worked in the second vineyard. It has been about three weeks since berry set and the berries are growing fast. I tried taking photos inside the greenhouse, but the light was not good, anyway this is a photo of the berries.
There hasn’t been much rain lately and there has been very hot days, and the vineyards are growing fast. I am very busy, this year there is not as much help as there was last year. But the gap between the three vineyards is better than last year, so I hope I can do it.
Now I have a camera with me most of the time. On the way the the vineyards I saw these flowers by the road and took some shots.
When I was in high school I liked photography a lot. That was the film era. Later I switched to digital using a point and shoot camera. And recently I got interested in digital SLR cameras and I got one. I am reading books and doing online courses, but most of all, taking more photos.
I am trying image editing techniques and processing. Like the image above, a High Dynamic Range photo made from five exposures. I also joined Instagram, and like it very much over other social networks. Photography is doing a lot for feeding my soul.
