Leaves, Trees, Vines and Wind. Napa in October
Been planning on a day out with new friends, another couple, for a few months now. It's tricky to make plans with another couple especially when you barely know them and you want to find an activity that both couples would enjoy. Since both of them are relatively new to the Bay Area we thought a drive out to the countryside would be best. The countryside in this case is Napa Valley. As I've learned from this trip, I think we found the best couple to take photo walks with. Both of them, especially the husband, is a voracious shooter. I am so happy to learn that. Our other couple friends tolerate our "need to photograph" this tree or that spot, but this couple I found out would be the first to jump out of the car and photograph the exact same thing/object.
And now for the things we saw and photographed:
Was not interested in seeing the third world's largest pumpkin.
Trees and vineyards.
Tree-lined country road, love it.
New photo buddies.
Too early for peak autumn colors.
The play of shadow on the fallen leaves is pretty appealing.
We stopped in Yountville for a look-see at the Marketplace area.
And back to vineyards we went:
We tried the dried grapes on the vine and they tasted exactly like the raisins you get from the supermarket.
It was a windy day.
