Live Music and Good Wine

On my last post TWILIGHT WINE TASTING, we went to the beautiful Sweet Cheeks Winery for some Twilight Tastings. That night the talented Tara Stonecipher & Gregg Vollstedt were there playing their music. They are a local group here and I just loved her bluesy voice 🙂

Here are a few shots of Tara and Gregg and I had to try and get a wine glass shot as well 😉

Twilight Wine Tasting

William and I have been to Sweet Cheeks Winery a few times (Sweet Cheeks Winery and Not Another Wine Post!), each time there are different ways of photographing it’s beauty. We traveled to the “Twilight Tastings” and because it’s winter the sun sets a lot sooner than last time we were there. 

These first two shots was the view before we arrived there and the rest is the outdoor area. Because it was cold and dark, no one ventured outdoors, so I was able to walk around and take pictures anywhere I wanted!

Revisiting the Winery Graveyard

Almost two year ago William and I ran into a graveyard while visiting a local winery. The Unexpected Graveyard was one of those moments where I was so happy to have Frank (my Canon) with me. At that point, I was taking all of my pictures on the “Landscape” setting on my camera haha! I was so new I had no idea what all the buttons and dials meant. So going back to that location was really exciting, just to see if I’d be able to make them any better. I’m not sure if they are any better, but they are a lot spookier! We have been experiencing freezing fog here the last couple of days. I was hoping the fog would be there when we got there, but I was so incredibly cold I was afraid I was rushing the pictures along. I hope I got the images the way I wanted to, it was nice being able to see that location again.

Here’s a shot of the winery not far from us, this is how foggy it was! HAHA

This is the walking path to the little graveyard.

I was sad to see quite a few headstones broken and propped up against trees, who knows where they are really suppose to be.
