I noticed that the older I get the more appreciative I am of the traditions in my life. A few years ago we started the tradition of driving to Napa as an alternative to shopping on Black Friday. While we were busy on Black Friday as we were hosting a Friendsgiving, we managed to continue the drive to Napa on Saturday. As luck would have it, the conditions were not ideal for a photo session. It was grey and misty and drizzly and cold. I did most of my shooting while the car was on the move. There was little chance to step out of the car and explore on foot because darkness was descending on the valley way too fast and the air was getting colder by the minute.
Don't get me wrong here, all year long we take drives to Napa. With its proximity to us, it is what we call our instant vacation destination if we only have a few hours to get away. However, there is something about the valley in November that I love. It's not one specific thing, but a combination of small things.
Rain is coming.
Rainbow sighting is a bonus.
