Napa, Sonoma, and Anderson Valley California, February 2019
Camera: Pentax KP Photo Location: California 
Posted By: skierd, 03-09-2019, 12:25 AM

This thread will be a selection of photos from my recent trip to wine country with my wife. I normally take an Olympus XA on vacation as I feel film simplifies my life when traveling, but I knew from past winery visits that I might prefer having the flexibility of digital.

These are from our second day, in and around Stags' Leap.

I saw some burned out areas but for the most part the wineries where we visited were spared. There was massive flooding while we were visiting however, the Russian River crested at 45 feet and a couple wineries (and towns!) were underwater.

IMHO, color worked better than B&W in this case.

The second photo is especially spectacular.

I suggested to an unknown flight seatmate in December who was en route to San Francisco for a vacation that a NAPA Valley side trip with a designated driver could be a lot of fun, and she received this info enthusiastically. San Francisco was a new destination for her. I afterward thought about the fires and how that could have been a flop. I am glad to read the wineries were largely spared.
