Vinography Images: Group of Trees in the Fog


Group of Trees in the Fog

"This image was taken in Sonoma county, near the town of Healdsburg. Nearby, the Russian River acts like a siphon for the fog on the coast, which creeps up the river valley and eventually spills over the hills providing a fantastic atmosphere for the vineyards." -- Michael Regnier

Beautiful picture. One thing I would add re: the Russian River acting like a siphon. When I was writing my 2005 book, "A Wine Journey along the Russian River," I was told by many winemakers, growers and scientists that it's not the River itself that acts as a siphon, rather it's the pattern of hills and valleys. i.e. the fog pattern would be the same even if there were no River. I still think that the River plays a part, though. All you have to do on any given day in Alexander Valley is see the way the fog hovers right over the water.

This is a beautiful scene.

I have to say, though, that I'd love to see this photograph presented without the paintbrush effect.

Well, I guess that's technically true, but isn't it also true that it was the river that created the valley in the first place?

No, I don't think so. The valley was created by plate tectonics and related activity. It's not a river valley like, say, the Grand Canyon was carved by the Colorado River. Once the Alexander Valley existed, with a slight tilt southward, the water pouring out from the Mendocino Highlands could form into a river, the Russian.

Hmm it seems like your blog ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I'll just
sum it up what I submitted and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your
blog. I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I'm still new to the whole thing.
Do you have any helpful hints for newbie blog writers? I'd genuinely appreciate it.

Normally, when you sell a junk car as early as possible,
it yields more profit than it would by selling it when it is a complete wreck.

Competitive prices are always paid by this recycler.
There are many places in Toronto where you get
scrap cars for cash.
