The hamlet in winter

This is one of the views of our little hamlet from out among the grape vines. It's looking roughly toward the northeast. I can make out five of the nine houses in our little group, including ours. The other four are a little farther down the road, behind the buildings you can see in this photo.

I can also see a few cars parked on the dirt road that runs through the vineyard. They belong to the crew that was out pruning on this particular morning. A few of the workers pass through, cutting the vine canes, while the rest of them follow behind and pull the cut canes off and line them up on the ground between rows. Later, someone will come through with a grinder and mulch the cut canes.


  1. An idyllic view ... and photograph. Beautifully done!

  2. I love that yellow color of a winter sky. For all that this is not a season I'm fond of, I do like those skies.

  3. mitch, thanks! I can't wait for it to get green again.

    emm, january is almost over. Hang on!


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
