The photos in the slideshow below are some that I took four days ago when I was out on my morning walk with Tasha the sheltie. The sky was clear and the light at sunrise was pretty. I was surprised to see how the grapes had suddenly plumped up and how ripe they looked. It rained off and on here yesterday afternoon, with a heavy shower late in the day. I hope the rain was beneficial. This slideshow is made up of 10 images and runs for less than 90 seconds.
The main white wine grape varietal grown here in the Renaudière Vineyard is Sauvignon Blanc. A lot of it goes into still Touraine-Chenonceaux wines. There are also parcels of Chardonnay and Chenin Blanc grapes scattered around the vineyard. They go mostly into making sparkling wines called Fines Bulles de Touraine.
Were your slide shows made with Photoshop Elements or with some other program?ReplyDelete
I use a free Microsoft app called Windows Movie Maker (2012). Actually, it has been EOLed, as we used to say at Claris/Apple. EOL means "end of life". Because you asked, I just looked up WMM on Wikipedia and learned that there is a new product for making movies that is included for free in Windows 10, which I've been using for several years now. I'll have to try it.Delete
J'ai essayé de faire un diaporama avec Gifmaker.me, mais ça ne marche pas aussi bien qu'avec photoshop.Delete
I was in Morehead late yesterday afternoon and found a great view that made me think of you. Turned out to be a pretty good photo. Don't know how to reach you other than through Facebook so I posted it on your page there.ReplyDelete
I saw it and commented. Thanks. Beautiful. Here's the photo.Delete
They're beautiful looking. I prefer Chardonnay to Sauvignon Blanc, but that's given our California selection which I'm sure is less than yours!ReplyDelete
Very beautiful! And quite off topic, I read mysteries a lot, almost compulsively, and was surprised today reading a Margaret Maron book called Shooting at Loons to come across many references to Morehead City and Beaufort and other places you've mentioned.ReplyDelete
Somehow I missed this comment. Interesting. I'll have to look for Maron's book. I wonder where she's from. The legend is that people in Carteret County NC used to hunt and eat loons.Delete
I just ordered that book. Maron is from N.C. I'm looking forward to reading it.Delete
