One Shot, Two Ways // Winery {Photo Challenge}

While in the South of France earlier this year, my girlfriends and I really wanted to go wine tasting, especially since we didn’t get the chance to go on a champagne tour while in Paris due to snow. Little did we know, most of the wineries have closed operation and sold their properties for hefty sums. So, we hired a private guide while in Nice and asked her to show us the sights. Our guide and driver Catherine Coppex was fantastic and showed us so much more than we could have done on our own – Monaco, Monte Carlo, Eze Village, St. Paul, a perfumerie, and so much more. She also found one of the last family wineries still in business and arranged for us to visit and have a private tasting. It was beyond wonderful!

And seeing that this weeks theme at the Daily Post is “One Shot, Two Ways” I decided to pull these shots from our visit to the winery. I believe the french wine maker said this was one of the old Roman ways of making wine, bottling in these vessels and leaving outdoors {rain, snow or shine} for three to nine months, depending on varietal.

The challenge set by the amazing and friendly photographer Jeff Sinon is to hone your eye to get the best shot – landscape (horizontal) or portrait (vertical) – of the same scene or subject. Be sure to check out more inspiration and different takes on the theme over at The Daily Post! Now go shoot!

As always, thanks for stopping by. Have a joyful, creative, blessing filled day!
Live creatively!

    That sounds like a amazing, exciting adventure. Having a very great tour and driver does make a huge difference. Beautiful picture of the wine vessels. A very unique way to aged the wine as well.
