Textured Wine Country

Wine country is so beautiful in the fall. The colors are intense, warm and rich, and a drive through the vineyards is eye candy at the moment. No big surprise that I chose a vineyard photo for today's Texture Tuesday.


In this photo I used two of Kim's textures, "kk_appreciate" in multiply blending mode at 86% and "kim klassenpumpkingrunge in soft light at 62%. A few levels and saturation adjustments and I got what I wanted.

The Geek and I toured our wine country a week ago and I wanted to show some of the photos here - I will post them soon. Until then, I hope you enjoy this image.

Lovely shot! I live in the Sonoma County wine country and love to gout on photo shoots this time of year.

Absolutely stunning!

I long to visit the California wine country, and I will some day. That is one of the reasons I want to practice my photography skills now, so I can hope to take a photo like this when I finally achieve that dream.
