"Merlot Dawn"

Thank you most sincerely to everyone who nominated and voted in the Pentax Forums ‘Dominant Colour - Red’ for my image ‘Merlot Dawn.’ I am honoured and humbled and it has been a very precious favourite of mine, and one of my most popular images for a number of years.

It was captured a few years ago now on a very foggy morning at one of my favourite locations, The Minya Winery near Torquay on Victoria’s Surfcoast and Great Ocean Road. Minya in Aboriginal means the place of many birds, and they have documented around 150 species there. I am privileged to be allowed to go onto the property at anytime of the day to photograph wherever I like.
