Dear All,

This is how the rows of vineyards look like when seen on a cold winter day. The winter mood was immense on that day and I like the way these vineyards were providing depth when looking over them towards the open vast sky and group of trees giving a different touch to the nice symmetry.

Hope you enjoy the mood here.

Kind regards,

Hi Paras.

The copse of trees is a welcome break to the semetry of these vines, it always looks unusual to see snow somewhere it would not normally be.
The sky suits the scene so well

stv ;o))

This is an interesting shot Paras, I like the symmetry of the rows of vines and your b/w conversion has given the scene a bleak wintry look which works very well ( it is unusual to see a b/w shot from you). I like the position of the group of trees and the soft focus of the branches.


Ciao Paras, lovely B&W composition with fantastic graphis, excellent clarity, splendid light and wonderful perspective, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Not quite what one visualizes when thinking of vineyards Paras,but it is their winter setting in many parts of the world
I assume this area of wine making ,also harvests a frozen grape for the making of Ice Wine, as they do in our area of BC.
These rows of grapevines & the group of leafless trees do make for a vibrant B&W,hope this one is hanging on your wall.TFS

Hi Paras...very nice shot. I like the graphic lines and your range of tones...well done.


Hi Paras,
The tall trees definately a focal point and the vines tend to lead one up the alley.That is cold can imagine what the temperature was that day.

Nice pov which serves to accentuate the contrast between the vines and the trees. Using B&W serves to accentuate the cold. Nicely done

Bonjour Paras
this one is certainly my favorite in the vineyards under snow collection, the island of trees breaks the uniformity and gives a bit of warmth in that cold universe
