Vinography Images: Hawkeye Mountain Estate II

Hawkeye Mountain Estate II

It’s difficult to make good images of vineyards. Take it from someone who’s tried. A lot. They most always come out flat and non dimensional, and certainly lacking the expansiveness and drama that beautiful vineyard landscapes all possess. In this image, like in many of Michael’s photographs, the topography of the vineyard leaps out at us — the bulging hillside rolls away out of the frame like the back of a breaching whale. I’ve seen many such spots in the hillside vineyards of the world, but I have never been able to capture them like this. — Alder Yarrow
