Reynoso Art: Jewels of Autumn

Malbec wine grapes in autumn

One Autumn morning, after harvest had ended, I was roaming through vineyards just after sunrise and I spotted this lone cluster of Malbec wine grapes. It was high on the vine, in fact it was quite a bit over my head! As you might imagine, it was a considerable challenge to compose and create this image, but I’m not one to turn down a challenge! I found myself compelled by the juxtaposition of the deep purple grapes in front of the softly illuminated fall foliage. I extended my tripod to its tallest height, pulled out my step stool, plugged in my cable shutter release, flipped down my camera’s LCD screen so I could see the cluster, and put my camera on manual focus. I studied the scene and experimented with many different angles, but this is one of my favorites from that exercise.

I’m a firm believer that beauty is *always* present, one but has to look. This is not always an easy task. I’ve been working on a project photographing a local family-owned  vineyard and winery for the last eight months… I still have four more months to go. Over the course of the project I have amassed a library of over 9,000 images of every aspect possible. I’ll admit, I did question what I would find to photograph once the grapes were harvested as I was previously unfamiliar with the life of a working vineyard season by season. I needn’t have worried- the possibilities have proved endless!
