Fall is such an incredible time of color and change.  The natural world is on its way to death; only to begin anew again next spring, I might add.  But now, it’s autumn.  I’m enjoying the warm days and cool nights here in my part of California.  And my little part includes the too-numerous-to-mention wine vineyards, in whatever season always an incredible subject for a photographic image or two.  This one comes from the Russian River Valley in Sonoma County.

Wine country.  That’s what I often say when someone asks me where I live.  There are so many vineyards and wineries around here, dotted within the valleys and hillsides north of San Francisco.  I used to buy wine only from Sonoma county, the county I live in.  But now, since I went to a wedding in Napa county and went back to explore the area, I do, on occasion, purchase something from Napa.  Actually, I don’t even drink that much wine.  It’s the beauty of the area that I really like.  These vineyards are up on the hillside above St. Helena.

I love the fall and it seems to be fading fast.  Storms and rain moving in where I live.  Yes, we may be on the edge of winter so a little more fall color seems appropriate.  The vineyards in Sonoma county are quite colorful this time of year.  The grapes are mostly gone, their juice already working its magic in large vats or barrels with a little yeast thrown in.  Sounds simple but it’s not.  So while the juice is doing its unseen thing, we get the incredible spoils; the beauty of the vines and leaves themselves in a setting sublime, mingling with natures color clock, changing its appearance from green to yellow to orange/red before falling off completely.  Now that’s art!

Yes, it’s autumn and the leaves are turning color and falling.  With so many vineyards around here, it doesn’t take much of a drive to experience the fall colors.  One of my favorite areas is out in the dry creek area of Sonoma county where this was taken.  So many beautiful images to behold.
