Above the Valley
This is a photograph of the El Olivar Vineyards of Viu Manent in Chile's Colchagua valley. I love how many different shades of green this valley contains. -- Alder Yarrow

Amazing how much the hillside resembles the western side of the Sonoma Mountains above Petaluma.
Well done, Mr. Wilson

What a beautiful picture. I proposed to my wife Julianna on a hillside vineyard in Colchagua Valley, likely not very far from this site. This is very much the view we enjoyed as we celebrated that evening. Thank you for prompting such nice memories of this special night. Cheers!

What a lovely view! If I would have the chance to visit that place, I would probably have difficulty in leaving.

This is such an evocative picture. The mountains in the background, the fields of green, the tree on the foreground... Reminds me of growing grapes at home a long time ago. Simply breathtaking.
