Vinography Images: Light Through Grapes

Light Through Grapes
In a miraculous chemistry shared with so many bounties of the natural world, grapes take the light of the sun and fuse it into something special, as if they were the opposite of prisms. Light here is both a source of life and of illumination, inseparably so. And I don't know about you, but looking at this image makes me hungry. And thirsty. -- Alder Yarrow

Any Katz has done it again. What a marvelous use of light. Interesting background as well. I love grape pictures and am always trying to take the perfect shot. Has not worked for me yet. But for like minded readers of your blog, if they take a peek at my Feb. 21 blog entry they will see a little sunshine on grapes bathing in it.
