32/333

Last month I entered a photo contest at a local nearby winery. I won a bottle of wine and a gift certificate to their B&B. I had not had a chance to retrieve my winnings until the other evening. Being this winery holds a monthly photo contest, I called phriend and, as always, she was happy to go. With camera gear in tow we took the drive out, spending an hour or so out in the snow covered vineyard, photographing this and that. Phriend even made a little snowman, using dried grapes, pieces of grape vines and leaves for all the essential snowman parts. When our toes could take no more of the cold and our fingers were too frozen to press the shutter release, we heading inside to warm up by the roaring fire. We stayed until dark.  On our way out phriend spent a few last minutes taking some awesome night shots full of starbursts. I think she took this months winner.
