60/305

In hopes of taking a winning photograph for a winery's monthly photo contest, Phriend and I spent a little over 3 hours setting up and clicking. We walked among the vineyard, rearranged their wine bottle displays, and played with corks. We waited for the sun to hit the window at the best angle to create a silhouette and we strung Christmas lights to enable us to get some awesome custom bokeh. Between the two of us, we have won the last four consecutive months. We're trying to “click it up a notch" as the pressure is on to make it 5.  (that's the vineyard reflecting in the glass)

I love that you keep heading to the winery every month... and keep getting spectacular photos! (I should check out some of our local wineries to see if they have contests too.) Wonderful capture! =)

I didn't see a beautiful model anywhere....

(thanks though :)

I'm not even entering the contest next month because you have it in the bag--no sense competing against that!

Beautiful silhouette. I like that you can even read the words on the glass as it's being emptied.
