Valley of Winelands - Paarl

For my first post in February 2010 (my does this year rocket past - even faster than last year!!) I thought I'd share another image from our trip in December 2009 to the Western Cape province of South Africa.

This area plays host to some of the best scenery, best wine estates and best restaurants in the country.

This 3-exposure HDR was shot from the wine-tasting lawn on the Seidelberg Wine Estate near the town of Paarl. The view looks over the Simonsberg mountain and the Franschhoek valley to the far left.

I hope that, if this serene scene finds you behind your desk wishing you were somewhere on the road to a beautiful place, that you will feel as if you could be on this lawn, tasting the fine wine, looking out over this lovely valley.

If you stumble across this post - please drop a comment telling me where you are now, and what you are doing! This way we can all share a moment in time.

Keep healthy and productive and keep clicking those cameras wherever you go!
