Deserts and Beyond

Deserts and beyond...places in and around the southern California deserts and beyond. Photo taken at Canyon Lake, in the Superstition Mountains of Arizona, December 2011. A few minutes later, after the sun disappeared, these cliffs were their normal color. They were only golden for a short time and I'm glad we were able to view them in their glory.

Zichichi Winery~Weekend Reflections 071710




While we were in northern California last week, we stopped at various wineries in the Dry Creek region. Neither one of us had stopped at Zichichi Winery, so hubby went in and tasted their wines and I wandered around the tasting room. I went outside on their porch and looked back and the beautiful reflections. It was very peaceful there. Hubby got to do a couple of barrel sample tastings (wine straight from the barrels) and he enjoyed that very much! As the designated driver, I don't participate! Instead, I get to take photos! Weekend Reflections for July 17, 2010. For other participants, please visit: http://newtowndailyphoto.blogspot.com/

Hello,
certamente questo non può che essere un luogo ideale per degustare del buon vino fresco direttamente dalla botte !
Felice sabato.

Those are such beautiful reflections too. What gorgeous doors and windows...I'd love to spend a little time on that patio to enjoy that scene twice! Wow!

Beth Niquette said...

Very nice. sitting on that patio, the windows look like a mural.

Visiting wineries is a ton of fun, but I'd never agree to be the designated driver! :-D Those windows must've been squeaky clean for you to capture that beautiful natural setting so spectacularly.

Congratulations on being the designated driver! Impressive restraint!

I love it when buildings take on the character of their reflections. This looks like a wonderful spot to sit and enjoy the day.
