A Different Shade of Vine


I found another vineyard with a few very colorful leaves still hanging on.


Different varieties of grapes make slightly different leaves, themselves producing different colors.



Whatever type of grape this is, I think makes the best autumn leaves.


And I discovered a few grapes that missed the pick and shall never be wine.


As I was preparing this post the thought crossed my mind, "Why didn't I taste the grape?"  Grrrr....


A Nikon Micro 105mm VR lens was used for these photos.

The light on the leaves - just wonderful, beautiful, and a moment to treasure!

Ms. Becky said...

ooh la la, the color and light! expertly photographed, these leaves and vines. my fave though is the cluster of grapes with the blush. I would have plucked first and then photographed, and ruined the photo! nicely done John. happy week to you.

I noticed you in the comments at someone else's blog this past week (you said something truly eloquent, and I have no idea whose blog), so when I saw you at Friday's Fences, I had to drop in and see what you are like. I love your photography!! I scrolled all the way to the bottom of the page, and have now come back to comment. Obviously, if you did not pick the grapes, you are waiting for them to freeze so they can be made into ice wine...
I love the light in these captures!

I had hoped to get some shots of fall grape leaves on our recent photo expedition but it didn't work out. Just as well, these are great. I wonder what the over ripe grapes would taste like. Sweet I think.

I think the amount of greenery on December posts supports the idea that the seasons are changing.We've got way too much colour for December.
Great pictures John.

Barb said...

Lovely colors. I think I'd be sampling one of those grapes, too.

Leslie said...

i think that third photo is my favorite (although they are all quite lovely.) the richness of the color in those grapes is amazing!

Linda said...

Fantastic photos. Especially like the translucence you captured in the grapes.
